Jill and I were SO excited to do our David and Jill Show yesterday, Sunday, at 3 PM. Sadly, the BeLive TV software simply DID NOT WORK. We started really early, well ahead of the scheduled show time, but I could not bring Jill into the broadcast studio. We were really angry, panicky and disappointed for all of you. I apologize deeply. Sadly, I had to delete the video.
I was so ticked off last night I did not get a whole lot of sleep! Jill and Lisa Kelley also felt the situation pretty intensely.
We will have to reevaluate whether or not we are going to be able to use that software in the future, as the problems have gotten much worse of late. We got a help person live, but she could not figure it out, either. Yikes!
However, DO NOT DESPAIR. We will bring you this topic yet, but may do it as a Feeling Good Podcast, as our recording and publishing system is far more more reliable.
So stay tuned for our show on–
Can the Five Secrets of Effective Communication Help Us in this Era of Intensely Polarized Politics?
I’ll let you know once it’s recorded and scheduled. 🙂
Jill, Lisa and I deeply appreciate your interest and support over the past year or more, and we really want to do stellar work for you.

TWO COOL UPCOMING WORKSHOPS FOR YOU
Dr. Jill Levitt and I are offering what I think will be an outstanding workshop on the treatment of unwanted habits and addictions on Sunday, February 10. Our Sunday workshops are tremendously fun, so consider attending if you are interested. We quickly sold out in-person but you can still join online.
THERE WILL BE MANY EXPERTS TRAINERS TO GUIDE THE ONLINE GROUP IN THE SMALL GROUP EXERCISES
During the program, you will have the chance to work on one of your own habits / addictions so you will get the double benefit of learning cool new treatment techniques and doing some personal healing at the same time!
You will develop a deeper understanding of Outcome and Process Resistance, and you will learn how to deal with this twin-horned Devil. As you know, TEAM-CBT features many innovative techniques to reduce Outcome and Process Resistance.
Here’s the BAD news. Very few therapists have the skills, insights, or mind-set to deal with resistance, and this is the main cause of therapeutic failure in the treatment of depression, anxiety disorders, relationship problems, and habits and addictions.
Here’s the GOOD news. Once you acquire these skills, your clinical effectiveness will soar!
Here are the specifics–
Act fast if you want to attend!
Don’t miss out learning from David Burns, MD, one of the great pioneers of Cognitive Therapy, and from the fabulous, Jill Levitt, PhD, Director of Training at the Feeling Good Institute in Mt. View, CA!

CAN I REGISTER IF I’M NOT A THERAPIST? In my opinion (Dr. Burns), although the workshop is geared for therapists, it will be taught in a clear and basic way that anyone can benefit from. Please check with the Feeling Good Institute if you want to attend.
CAN I WORK ON MY OWN HABIT / ADDICTION? Absolutely!
Heal yourself, heal your clients!
WILL I HAVE FUN? Yes!
You will also:
- Learn new skills to reduce resistance and boost the motivation to change. This is THE key to the treatment of any habit or addiction.
- Learn how to use Dr. Burns’ powerful Decision-Making Tool and Triple Paradox Technique.

You will love this lively, amusing, and immensely useful day of training with Drs. Burns, Levitt and the Feeling Good Institute Staff. The trainers will use a combination of didactic teaching, live demonstrations, and breakout group practice to enhance skill-building.
