Temporary Podcast Hiatus

Temporary Podcast Hiatus

Hi friends and colleagues,

Fabrice is taking a much deserved summer vacation break, so we will not be broadcasting any Feeling Good Podcasts this week or next week. We both apologize for the break, but want to thank you for your terrific support of our efforts!

By the way, both summer intensives were fabulous! I want to thank all those who attended in Canada (Banff) and in the United States (Burlingame, CA). I did live demonstrations at both, and they were tremendously rewarding and informative, except for a few participants who did not believe people could recover from depression and anxiety so rapidly and completely, and claimed that the live demonstrations with audience volunteers were staged! Some people have been taught that the treatment of depression is a long, slow process, and they have a hard time re-adjusting their expectations and beliefs, which is totally understandable.

With TEAM-CBT, the recovery is usually sudden. The very moment the patient stops believing the distorted negative thoughts, the mood almost instantly changes. This is more like the model of pain reduction when you take your hand off of a hot stove!

I have been posting much less recently to all my blogs because I am using my time and energy on my new book, which will be for all of you!

All the best,

David

Hi everybody,

My two esteemed colleagues, Angela Krumm, PhD and Jill Levitt, PhD, kindly made a brief video on the upcoming summer intensive. The intensive in Banff last week was blow-away, and I’m hoping the upcoming intensive in Burlingame, California will be as good!

Here’s the video:

 

Here are the details:
High Speed, Drug Free Treatment of Depression and Anxiety
A Four-Day TEAM-CBT Advanced Intensive
July 31 – August 3, Burlingame, California

There will be many cool helpers from my Tuesday group at Stanford helping out with the small group exercises.

If interested, move quickly as the date is fast approaching and the event is almost sold out, only a couple openings left, as attendance is strictly limited. I hope you can join me, and look forward to getting to know you if you attend!

All the best,

David

After 32 Years of Depression–Your Podcasts Helped!

After 32 Years of Depression–Your Podcasts Helped!

Hi David.

My name is Hassan and I have been suffering from depression and anxiety for the last 32 years.

I am glad that after listening your podcasts and reading some of your other written materials, I have finally managed to reduced my mental suffering considerably. I am a math teacher and recently earned a degree in psychology, just to understand the causes of my mental disorders.

Could you kindly guide me on how I can take part in your workshops and other training sessions? I want to improve my learning in order to cure my psychological issues and help others in my country tackle anxiety and depression.

Hassan

Hi Hassan.

Thank you for your email. I feel sad you’ve been feeling depressed for so long, but I’m impressed by your hard work, and I’m sure it will pay off for you!

Here are several things might help, if you’d like to learn more about the new techniques I’ve been developing:

  1. Attend any of my workshops, if you can. They are listed on the workshop tab on my website, feelinggood.com. The two upcoming 4-day intensives later this month (Banff, Canada and San Francisco) should be extremely helpful and fun. In the fall, I will also be offering two-day workshops on the high-speed treatment of individuals who have experienced trauma, with additional workshops on other topics in 2018.
  2. You might benefit from my eBook, Tools, Not Schools, of Therapy. Order forms are on my website. This is a step by step guide in how to do TEAM-CBT. It is intended for therapists.
  3. You could join one of the weekly online training groups, and you can find information about them on my website as well. These would be ideal for you, because you can join in from anywhere in the world, and the teachers are outstanding! There are small numbers of individuals in each group, so you get lots of individual attention and chances to actually practice the new TEAM-CBT techniques.
  4. You can visit www.feelinggoodinstitute.com. They have a variety of online training groups, plus a TEAM-CBT certification program.
  5. You can read any of my books for the general public. They seem to be helpful to therapists as well as individuals who are looking for help with depression, anxiety, or relationship problems. All should be available from Amazon.com and other online book sellers. Here are some of the titles:
  • Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy
  • Feeling Good Together
  • The Feeling Good Handbook
  • Ten Days to Self-Esteem
  • When Panic Attacks
  • Intimate Connections
  1. If you are ever in the San Francisco area on vacation, you would be welcome to visit one of my free of charge Tuesday evening training groups at the Stanford Medical School. You would be welcome on one of the Sunday morning hikes as well. I know it is a long way from your home, but we actually had a visitor (a neurologist) from China recently! She also came to a summer intensive, and then married one of our Tuesday group members, and now lives with him here in California!

Good luck, Hassan, and thank you so much for your kind email. Fabrice and I appreciate hearing from folks who have been listening to our Feeling Good Podcasts!
