061: Ask David! What Causes Depression and Anxiety?

Podcast 61, David and Fabrice answer your questions

In today’s podcast, David and Fabrice address a number of excellent questions submitted by listeners:

  1. Are the scales on your Brief Mood Survey reliable and valid?
  2. How can I identify my Negative Thoughts when I’m upset but I can’t figure out what I’m thinking and telling myself?
  3. I have social anxiety and don’t want to get out of bed. I’d rather just lie in bed and watch Game of Thrones. Help me! What should I do?
  4. I saw an article in the paper that claimed that bacteria in the gut cause anxiety. Is this true? If not, what does cause depression and anxiety?
  5. Could your tools, like the Cost-Benefit Analysis, help with problems that aren’t necessarily emotional problems? Like what career to pursue, or what college to go to?
  6. What should you do if you feel great at the end of a therapy session, and then become severely upset again during the week?
  7. How does Dr. Burns deal with resistance from colleagues when he is trying to teach these new TEAM-CBT techniques? Does he run into much resistance? How does he feel about the resistance?

David and Fabrice love your questions so keep them coming!

  1. David,

    I just want to compliment you on the integrity you bring to your work and mission. I get angry when I hear that clinicians are charging other clinicians royalty fees every time their measurement scales are used. It can make it very cost prohibitive to treat clients. It is wonderful that you do not do that, and that you developed your own scales that are better.
