Hi visitors and FeelingGood.com members,
A colleague and former student, Jacob Towery, MD, has written an excellent book on depression for teenagers called The Antidepressant Book, now available in audio as well as in print. If you know of a depressed adolescent or teenager, this might be helpful. Check it out on the brief video below!
My live FB broadcasts have been moved to 3 PM Pacific (California) Time every Sunday afternoon. I hope you can join us! The show is for therapists and the general public alike. If you cannot join us live, you can download the shows and listen any time that’s convenient for you!
Feel free to submit questions you’d like me to cover in these shows. Your questions drive the discussion each Sunday afternoon!
I did not broadcast yesterday, February 4th, 2018, due to the Superbowl, a kind of national holiday in the US, but will broadcast again next Sunday, the 11th.
How to Find My FB Broadcasts

The David and Fabrice Feeling Good Podcasts
Fabrice and I hope you also enjoy our weekly Feeling Good Podcasts, and also hope you can leave some positive comments for us and some five star ratings if you like what we’re doing! We are now enjoying 40,000 downloads per month from listeners like you. Thank you so much for your support of our podcasts!
At least one listener has had problems leaving an iTunes review from his i-phone, so Fabrice has created some simple to follow instructions if you need help.
Free Mood Training for Teens + David’s Upcoming Intensives + More Live Therapy on the Feeling Good Podcasts
There are many exciting upcoming events that might interest you, your colleagues, your patients, or your friends.
First, my esteemed colleague, Jacob Towery, MD, is offering some really neat free intensives for teenagers who are struggling with depression (June 12 – 16, 9 am-4:30 pm) or anxiety (August 7- 11, 9 am-4:30 pm). What a cool way to spend a part of your summer–learning the secrets of self-esteem and self-confidence!
It is very unusual for highly skilled TEAM-CBT psychiatrist–or ANY mental health professional–to offer free treatment. If you are interested in learning more, click here! But move quickly as there are mandatory orientation sessions prior to the intensives.
If you know of a teenager who is struggling (and so many of them are), what a wonderful gift to make that individual aware of this phenomenal opportunity to learn from an exceptionally talented psychiatrist and teacher who believes, as I do, in “Skills, Not Pills.” This could be a life-changing, or even a life-saving, opportunity for a teenager you love.
Second, I will be offering my own four-day intensives for mental health professionals again this summer, both in Banff, Canada and in Burlingame, California. These are always my most effective and rewarding training conferences of the year. Here are the details:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: A Four-Day Intensive Training
July 17 – 20, Banff, Canada
For more information, click here
Phone: 604.924.0296 Toll-free: 1.800.456.5424
High Speed, Drug Free Treatment of Depression and Anxiety Disorders–
A Four-Day TEAM-CBT Advanced Intensive
July 31 – August 3, Burlingame, California
For more information, click here
If interested, move quickly as the dates are fast approaching and they often sell out, as attendance is limited at both events.
Finally, my inbox has been flooded with notes of intense appreciation for the live therapy with Mark, the physician who felt like a failure as a father, on the Feeling Good Podcast, with requests for more of the same. So Fabrice and I are already planning more live therapy work, so stay tuned!
I deeply apologize for blogging less frequently lately. I’ve been working on my new book, which I’m writing for YOU, and I’m doing some writing on it every day. It is coming along fairly rapidly. But that’s why I’ve had less time for answering questions and blogging, and I apologize! It is not due to any lack of interest in you, but simply the lack of enough hours in the day to keep up with everything these days.
If you are reading this blog on social media, I appreciate it! I would like to invite you to visit my website, http://www.FeelingGood.com, as well. There you will find a wealth of free goodies, including my Feeling Good blogs, my Feeling Good Podcasts with host, Dr. Fabrice Nye, and the Ask Dr. David blogs as well, along with announcements of upcoming workshops, and tons of resources for mental health professionals as well as patients!
