Hi friends and colleagues,
Fabrice is taking a much deserved summer vacation break, so we will not be broadcasting any Feeling Good Podcasts this week or next week. We both apologize for the break, but want to thank you for your terrific support of our efforts!
By the way, both summer intensives were fabulous! I want to thank all those who attended in Canada (Banff) and in the United States (Burlingame, CA). I did live demonstrations at both, and they were tremendously rewarding and informative, except for a few participants who did not believe people could recover from depression and anxiety so rapidly and completely, and claimed that the live demonstrations with audience volunteers were staged! Some people have been taught that the treatment of depression is a long, slow process, and they have a hard time re-adjusting their expectations and beliefs, which is totally understandable.
With TEAM-CBT, the recovery is usually sudden. The very moment the patient stops believing the distorted negative thoughts, the mood almost instantly changes. This is more like the model of pain reduction when you take your hand off of a hot stove!
I have been posting much less recently to all my blogs because I am using my time and energy on my new book, which will be for all of you!
All the best,
