I also spotted an error in the blog I just sent out. The error was an error in the audio file for the Monday, January 13, 2020 (not January 6) podcast on “What if I really am a useless human being?”
I have also discovered that on the list of Feeling Good Podcasts, all the podcasts from #17 to the present time are off by 1. I am checking with a colleague to see the best way to fix this, as the list is an extremely valuable resource.
I apologize for some glitches we are fixing since the launch of the newly remodeled website, and hope you will like the new version!
Hungry for Some Awesome Training?
BI’ll be doing two cool one day workshops on topics of enormous importance:
- How to overcome therapeutic resistance and boost patient motivation on February 9, 2019. This is the most important topic in all of psychotherapy, and the methods you will learn are innovative, surprising, and powerful. The focus will be on melting away therapeutic resistance in patients with depression (morning session) and anxiety disorders (afternoon).
- The best techniques to smash each of the ten cognitive distortions first described in my book, Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy.
I’m thrilled to be joined at both workshops by my esteemed colleague, Dr. Jill Levitt. We love to teach together! When we teach together, it makes for a dynamic and fun dance of learning. If you’ve heard us before, you know that Jill is warm, brilliant, and incredibly clear, so you can really LEARN and master concepts and practice techniques that can transform your practice.
You can join both online from anywhere in the world, or join us in person in Palo Alto for free breakfast, lunch, and schmoozing! You’ll find the details below.
You can reach Dr. Burns at firstname.lastname@example.org. Dr. Rhonda Barovsky practices in Walnut Creek, California, and can be reached at email@example.com. She is a Certified TEAM-CBT therapist and specializes in the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship problems. She also does forensic work in family court, but finds TEAM-CBT to be way more rewarding!

High Speed Methods to Reduce Resistance
and Boost Motivation
This is the most important, and least understood, topic in the behavioral sciences. Nearly all therapeutic failure results from the failure to address resistance. Therapists do not understand what causes resistance or how treat it effectively.
Come to this workshop and learn how to melt away resistance for incredibly high-speed recovery!
With Drs. David Burns and Jill Levitt

The Cognitive Distortion Starter Kit:
How to Crush Negative Thoughts
TEAM-CBT includes more than 100 powerful techniques to change the distorted thoughts that trigger negative emotions. But what techniques should I select for my patient who feels depressed, anxious, or angry?
As you know, in my book, Feeling Good, I listed the ten most common cognitive distortions, like All-or-Nothing Thinking, Should Statements, Emotional Reasoning, and more, and you probably use that list all the time in your clinical work. But do you know which techniques work the best for each distortion?
Come to this workshop and find out! You’ll learn with tons of cool techniques you can use every day to boost your clinical effectiveness.
