This fun, interactive psychotherapy training manual describes Dr. Burns’  TEAM Therapy in a clear, step-by-step manner with written and role-playing exercises designed for individuals or classes so you can master the techniques. The exercises are mandatory to learning, as reading alone will not be effective. SEE video below for a look inside.

  • T = Testing: How to take a world-class clinical history accurately and quickly assess treatment progress as well as the quality of the therapeutic alliance at the start and end of every therapy session.
  • E = Empathy: How to empathize with the most challenging patients, including those who are hostile, critical, oppositional, overwhelmed, passive, argumentative, or flirtatious using the Five Secrets of Effective Communication.
  • A = (Paradoxical) Agenda Setting: How to melt away therapeutic resistance and make patients accountable, using paradoxical agenda setting techniques. These are incredibly powerful and advanced psychotherapy techniques.
  • M = Methods: How to use 50 innovative and highly effective psychotherapy techniques, such as the Externalization of Voices and Acceptance Paradox, and how to select the most effective techniques for each patient / problem.
