If you’ve ever been to a David and Jill workshop, or to one of my intensives, you’ve undoubtedly seen the remarkably rapid recovery of the patients in the live TEAM-CBT demonstrations. In this all-new workshop, you will learn how to use the same powerful techniques so you can bring rapid and profound change to your patients as well.
There’s a double benefit. Not only will your patients recover more rapidly, but your clinical work will be way more rewarding for you as well. One of the high spots in our lives is witnessing profound changes in our patients during therapy sessions.
One of the most important keys to change is the use of dynamic CBT role-playing techniques that work at the gut level to crush the negative thoughts that cause depression and anxiety. We will illustrate ten of the most powerful techniques and give you the chance to practice several of them in small groups, with mentoring, so you can polish and refine your skills.
The techniques you will learn include:
The Externalization of Resistance
The Externalization of Voices with
The Acceptance Paradox
The CAT (Counter-Attack Technique)
The Straightforward and Paradoxical Double Standard Techniques
Four Feared Fantasy Techniques
High School Reunion
“I judge you!”
Rejection Feared Fantasy
The Devil’s Advocate Technique
The Forced Empathy Technique
A team of expert trainers will be with you online in your breakout groups, answering your questions and providing helpful feedback while you practice.
This will be a live-streamed,
online workshop for therapists.
Hello Dr. Burns! (as Buddha said twenty hundred years ago!) My name is Mahan (pronounce a the way you pronounce it in the word car) and I know you get a lot of praise from your fans around you so I’m not gonna repeat them. I just wanna say your fans are not just in the US or other popular countries and you have a lot of admires throughout the Earth and some of them can’t even speak English Properly. One of these admirers is me, a 17-year old boy from Iran who is suffering from 6 types of anxiety disorders. You should be proud of the work you have done so far and that you have helped a lot of fellow anxious people. You are very good at it too maybe because you once suffered from it. Finally, there is one question I would like to ask that’s been bugging me lately since I’m majoring in Psychology. Do you think that human psyche is just his/her nervous system or there is also an invisible aspect of it? How come some drugs can have people in mental states they dream to have? If some basic chemical substances can do such a thing, doesn’t that mean that our mental health is just the way our nervous system works? I will now shut up…
Thanks! To me it is somewhat or very weird how the human brain creates “consciousness.” I think this MIGHT be one of the deepest puzzles of the universe, similar to the question of how the universe itself came into existence 14.8 billion years ago. I do think the human mind is the creation of the human brain. I do not know if artificial intelligence will someday become similar to, and superior to, the human mind, but it seems likely, or at least very possible. Hope that helps. Sadly, I cannot give you the answers, and I, too, am puzzled.
We have many people from Iran in my training program at Stanford, and in college, my sophomore year roommate was from Iran, Farzam Arbad, who is I have heard very prominent in a religious system in Iran. I cannot think of the name of the religion, however. Actually, it was the Bahai religion, and I just now learned that he recently died, sadly: https://news.bahai.org/story/1453/
All the best, david
