Move Fast–Sale Ends December 9, 2018.

Hi therapists and patients alike,

In a totally unexpected and awesome development, my publisher has decided to make the eBook of When Panic Attacks available for a limited time for the ridiculously cheap price of $1.99 in the United States and Canada. I was thrilled to hear this, and applaud them for this bold move. When Panic Attacks has been invaluable for therapists and life-changing for thousands of people suffering from every form of anxiety (not just panic attacks).

I have heard through the grapevine that this sale will only last until December 9, 2018, so move fast. Get your copy right away–from any book seller you want! It’s already available for this price on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble, and should be available from all booksellers by tomorrow if not already.

And please note my upcoming PESI workshop on the treatment of anxiety coming up later this week in San Francisco and early next week in Portland. Attend in person in SF or join us live or online for the Portland workshop which will be live-streamed so you can watch and learn from anywhere in the world.

In addition, note my three presentations at the Milton Erikson Brief Therapy Conference in Burlingame, California December 6 – 9, 2018. It promises to be a tremendous event, with chances to hear tons of top presenters.

I am still looking for volunteers from the workshops for the live demonstrations on the evenings of day 1 of the Anxiety Workshop in SF and Portland. Contact me right away if you plan to attend in person and think you might want help with some form of anxiety, such as public speaking anxiety, social anxiety, and so forth.

I am also looking for a volunteer for the live demonstration I will do with Jill Levitt in Burlingame at the Brief Therapy Conference on the morning of Friday, December 7th. The live work is almost always transformative and provides a tremendous opportunity for the one who volunteers for the “patient role” and for all of those who attend.

So if you think you might be interested in one of these three opportunities, let me know. Please be aware that the live sessions in Burlingame and in Portland (but not SF) will be videotaped for later distribution to therapists. So I am hoping for two brave volunteers who would not mind appearing on video for later generations!

This is a big step, since live work is, of course, quite personal. if you decide to withdraw your consent after the demonstration, you will have the chance to do so, but I hope that won’t happen, especially if the sessions is super-inspirational. Wonderful videos of live therapy work where you see sudden, profound, and lasting change can be extraordinarily helpful.

David’s Sunday FB Broadcast with Jill and Mike is on at 3 PM (PT), April 1, 2018!

David’s Sunday FB Broadcast with Jill and Mike is on at 3 PM (PT), April 1, 2018!

David’s back!

Hi all!

I’m back from my two-day trauma workshop in Lancaster, Pa and eager to connect with all of you again! The workshop was extremely well received, and the live demonstration on the evening of Day 1 received one of the highest ratings ever for one of my workshops. The woman who volunteered was exceptionally courageous and touched the hearts of the many people who observed.

You can still purchase the recordings of the workshop or the live demonstration if you want to attend this workshop–CE credits are available, too!

Tomorrow, the David and Jill Show returns on Facebook live, with special guest Mike Christensen, at 3 PM Pacific Standard Time. We will describe powerful, drug-free treatment methods for OCD and will answer your questions as well. If you can’t catch us live, you can listen any time you want, as the broadcasts can all be accessed 24 hours a day on my public FB Page.

Here are some cool new stats, thanks to all of you!

  • My weekly Feeling Good Broadcasts with host Fabrice Nye had more than 46,000 downloads this month–a new record! The live therapy with Daisy partially accounted for this increase. That show was a profoundly appreciated many people who wrote to thank Daisy following the show. Daisy has contributed greatly to our podcasts, and to all of you, too. The live sessions we’ve done have been by far the most impactful, so Fabrice and I hope to do more live work for you.
  • My website, www.FeelingGood.com, received nearly 45,000 hits this month–another new record!
  • My Sunday FB Broadcasts are now watched by 1,500 to 2,000 people each week. If you like it, tell your friends so I can grow this audience, too. Jill and Mike Christensen are both fabulous guests / co-hosts, and I am honored to able to work with them!

I greatly appreciate your support, and hope you will continue to spread the word about TEAM-CBT and www.feelinggood.com. i am trying hard to reach as many people as possible with all kinds of free programming and blogs designed to help individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, and habits and addictions, as well as the therapists who treat them!

043: OCD — The Hidden Emotion Technique

Using the Hidden Emotion Technique With Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

In this podcast, David and Fabrice answer questions on OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) submitted by three listeners. Is it an organic illness? Are drugs necessary in the treatment? What’s the best book to read if you want to heal yourself? What’s the prognosis?

Drs. Nye and Burns begin by explaining OCD and answering the questions. David emphasizes the importance of using four treatment models when working with OCD—the cognitive model, the motivational model, the exposure model, and the hidden emotion model if you are hoping for a rapid and complete elimination of symptoms. Treatment that focus on only one treatment method, such as exposure and response prevention, may have only limited success.

He describes his treatment of a medical student named Ralph with classic OCD. Ralph was frequently plagued by the fear he was dying of AIDS; then he’d get so anxious that he’d go to the emergency room and insist on having a blood test for HIV. These always came out negative, and this brought temporary relief, but within a few days Ralph would be worrying about AIDS again and feeling the overwhelming compulsion to get yet another blood test.

The case was especially curious because Ralph was engaged and faithful to his fiancé, so there was no rational reason for him to think he had become infected with the HIV virus. However, he’d tell himself, “Maybe I drew blood on a patient with AIDS and then pricked myself with the needle, and then forgot. And how can I know that this didn’t happen?” This are extremely typical of the kind of obsessions that plague OCD patients. Ralph would torture himself with these thoughts until he succumbed to the urge to get another blood test for AIDS.

Although years of conventional psychotherapy had failed this patient, the Hidden Emotion Technique led to an incredible recovery in just a few minutes during a therapy session. You will find this true story inspiring and amazing! And David provides an even more amazing 40-year follow up report!

In the next Feeling Good Podcast, David and Fabrice will describe more examples of patients with severe OCD who experienced dramatic relief because of David’s Hidden Emotion Technique. This technique can be helpful for all anxiety disorders, and not just OCD. However, David emphasizes that this is just one of many techniques he uses in the treatment of anxious patients. He cautions therapists against thinking three is just ONE best technique for any anxiety disorder, including OCD.

Hi all,

Yesterday while learning a new tool to use in my postings, I inadvertently posted a draft of a blog not scheduled for several weeks on the What-If Technique. I apologize if it did not make much sense to you! I was learning how to embed PowerPoint presentations in blogs, which will add a great dimension to some future blogs. I apologize for this error, and promise that the actual Feeling Good Podcast on the What-If Technique, scheduled for early June, will be way better! It is actually a cool “uncovering technique” developed by the late Dr. Albert Ellis. You can use it to uncover a fear at the root of your anxiety. So stay tuned, and have a wonderful Mother’s Day tomorrow!

David
