David’s FB Live Returns TODAY, May 27, 2018 at 3 PM PST. Intimacy Training, Part 2!

All the GOOD Reasons NOT
to Use the Five Secrets of Effective Communication!

and

How to Give Criticism

Today, Dr. Jill Levitt, Mike Christensen and I will return for an incredibly important, controversial and exciting FB Broadcast. You can join us live and participate in the dialogue or watch the recording anytime.

In the last FB Live broadcast of the David and Jill Show two weeks ago, we discussed and modeled how to handle criticism. This week, we will focus on how to give criticism. We will also focus on resistance to using the the Five Secrets of Effective Communication to develop more satisfying and loving relationships with the people we’re at odds with.

Mental health professionals, as well as our patients, and human beings in general, seem to have incredible difficulties resolving relationship conflicts. Why is this?

Tune in this afternoon to find out! Or, if you’re reading this in the future, you can find the recording on my public FB page. Look for the show of May 27, 2018.

I’ll be joined by the brilliant and totally wonderful Kyle Jones, a 3rd year PhD student at Palo Alto University with outstanding clinical skills.

FB Live Returns on May 27, 2018 at 3 PM PST. Intimacy Training, Part 2!

All the GOOD Reasons NOT
to Use the Five Secrets of Effective Communication!

On Sunday, Dr. Jill Levitt, Mike Christensen and I will return for an incredibly important, controversial and exciting FB Broadcast. You can join us live and participate in the dialogue or watch the recording anytime.

For quite a few weeks I’ve pointed out that mental health professionals, as well as their patients, seem to have incredible difficulties learning to resolve relationship conflicts. This is in stark contrast to the treatment of depression and anxiety, which is usually (at least in my experience) super-fast and relatively easy using the new TEAM-CBT.

But when the main complaint is a relationship conflict, treatment can be slow. VERY slow! High skilled mental health professionals seem to choke when it comes to dealing with conflicts with loved ones. I’ve been speculating on why this might be in my many blogs.

Why is it sometimes so hard to treat individuals with relationship problems? Why is it so hard to heal to resolve our own conflicts?

Well, now we know what the answer is. Tune in Sunday to find out!

We changed our topic for this show due to some revealing new information based on a survey of a group of TEAM-CBT therapists just a few days ago.

Also, here’s a question for you to ponder in the meantime. What do you prefer? Hostile, conflicted relationships? Or joyous, loving, rewarding ones?

The answer may surprise you.

David and Jill Show #4: Treatment of OCD

David and Jill Show #4: Treatment of OCD

Watch the fourth David and Jill Show on the Treatment of OCD!

Hi all!

The fourth David and Jill Show on the treatment of OCD with guest Mike Christensen will start at 3 PM. Show #3 has set a new record of more than 2 thousand viewers in the first week alone. You can still watch it!

During the show, we will also answer questions from those who attend the show live. We’ll have a lot of energy and ideas to share, so join us if you can!

The Feeling Good Podcast last Monday–live therapy with Daisy–also drew exceptionally well and was enthusiastically received. In fact, this month it looks like we will set a new record with more than 40,000 downloads! Thank you all for your support!

During the session with Daisy, we address the question, “What’s the secret of a meaningful life?” We also discuss the empowerment of women, and the intimidating messages women often hear from society, and from families when growing up. Make sure you catch it if you have not listened yet!

Also, remember to register for the one-day David and Jill workshop on Sunday, May 20, 2018. It’s for mental health professionals. You’ll have a chance to learn the latest TEAM-CBT techniques and work on your own insecurities and feelings of self-doubt as well. We promise to bring roughly 60% of the audience into a state of joyous enlightenment, so don’t miss it!

David and Jill Show #3 Sets Record!

David and Jill Show #3 Sets Record!

Watch the Third David and Jill Show on Intimacy Training!

Hi all!

The third David and Jill Show on Intimacy Training with guest Mike Christensen has set a new record of 1.6 thousand viewers in the first two days alone. You can still watch it!

David and Jill begin by reading a question from a viewer named Don who was having a conflict with his girlfriend. David, Jill, and Mike go review the five steps of the Relationship Journal and show how Don how he can transform his argument into a more open and loving dialogue using the Five Secrets of Effective Communication. During the show, Jill notices a live viewer who wrote, “I don’t like Jill” in the comment column. You will LOVE Jill’s masterful response, which illustrates the whole point of the show in real time. Then Mike describes how he bravely handled a painful criticism from his daughter who complained that he sounded phony.

Many people believe that the Relationship Journal is all about learning how to communicate more effectively, but it’s not. It’s really about the “Great Death” of the ego and how to develop interpersonal enlightenment. It’s a spiritual tool, which is exciting, but be careful–the death of the ego can be painful! Of course, the reward of greater trust and love is definitely worthwhile. The third David and Jill Show is definitely a “must see” show, and you can catch it any time that’s convenient for you.

Yesterday’s Feeling Good Podcast–live therapy with Daisy–also drew exceptionally well and was enthusiastically received. During the session, they address the question, “What’s the secret of a meaningful life?” Make sure you catch it if you have not listened yet!

Also, remember to register for the one-day David and Jill workshop on Sunday, May 20, 2018. It’s for mental health professionals. You’ll have a chance to learn the latest TEAM-CBT techniques and work on your own insecurities and feelings of self-doubt as well.

David and Jill Show #3: Developing Greater Intimacy

The David and Jill Show!

March 11, 2018, 3 PM Pacific Standard Time

Hi all!

The third David and Jill Show will be on my Public FB Page but with an exciting new feature. We will be using the BeLive software, which will allow us to have up to four people on the screen at the same time, from your own location. This is the first time we’ve used the software, so please be a little patient with us if it takes a few minutes for us to get it started properly. We practiced today, so it should be fairly smooth–hopefully!

There is a large announcement of the show right on my FB Page, so you should have no problems locating it and linking in. As usual, we will take your questions on mental health issues, but will start with a couple great questions submitted by listeners. The first one will focus on how to resolve conflicts from critical loved ones so you can transform arguments into love and trust.

We may also be able to bring Mike Christensen into the live broadcast. He is also totally awesome, a superb TEAM-CBT teacher and therapist, so we have high hopes for tomorrow. If it works, it will make it possible for us to interact live with you, voice photo and all, during the Sunday broadcasts, so we can role playing, answer questions directly, and so forth.

Also, remember to register for the one-day David and Jill workshop on Sunday, May 20, 2018. It’s for mental health professionals. You’ll have a chance to learn the latest TEAM-CBT techniques and work on your own insecurities and feelings of self-doubt as well.
