Overcoming Resistance for Rapid Recovery

Comment: Hi Dr. Burns,

I’ve read your book Feeling Good and it helped me greatly really and I want to thank you for that book. And now I just saw one of your interviews about TEAM-CBT and even just reading the case and applying the methods on myself helped me even more! Seeing the symptoms not as defects but some kind of a self-defense system makes sense and this lets your subconscious accept the help immediately.

I wonder if you are planning to publish another self-help book about TEAM-CBT.

I believe this invention can change the psychiatry world. Thank you for your great works.

Hi Kerem,

You got it. Thanks! I am excited that my message is starting to get through. I am thinking seriously about a new book, and trying to think of a title.

Yes, I agree, the Invitation Step, and in fact the many Paradoxical Agenda Setting tools I have developed have the potential to revolutionize psychiatric and psychological treatment. I am trying to get the word out, and trying to learn more about how to use my posts and other accounts to connect with folks.

  1. Hi, Dr. Burns! Can you explain a little more as to what, Kerem, is referring to here. “Seeing the symptoms not as defects but some kind of a self-defense system makes sense and this lets your subconscious accept the help immediately.” The whole symptoms not as defects, rather as a self-defense system makes sense. I’m assuming you’re referring to depression and anxiety. What I was wondering was, can you give me an example of symptoms of Obesessive-Compulsive Disorder, and how they would act as a self-defense system, letting your subconscious accept the help immediately. Thank you for all that you’ve done, and continue to do for the field of mental health!
