Upcoming Workshop Schedule

2020 / 21 Workshops

Sadly, I have had to cancel my in-person workshops due to the covid-19 pandemic. However, I have two exciting upcoming virtual workshops described below, and I may be offering more this year, so check back to this page from time to time.

I have scheduled several presentations at the Evolution of Psychotherapy Conference in December, as you will see below. I do not yet know if this conference will be live or virtual. It only comes around every few years, and is awesome.

The two virtual workshops with Dr. Levitt will be on October 11th, 2020 and February 28, 2021.

This workshop has been coordinated with the release of my new book, Feeling Great, in mid-September. You can already pre-order it on Amazon, and I have heard it recently was #1 on the Amazon anxiety best seller list.

Jill and I are very excited about our new workshops, and we have appreciated your support! That last several we have offered have been phenomenally successful.  These workshops are designed for mental health professionals. Jill is one of the great psychotherapy trainers, and we really work well together.

We’ve been called the “dynamic duo,” and I think that moniker is pretty valid, although that statement probably sounds a bit over the top. Our workshops always include lots of powerful, practical techniques plus fun experiential exercises to boost your learning and mastery.

The following is an unsolicited endorsement for one of the online workshops by Drs. David Burns and Jill Levitt.

This was my second online workshop with Drs. Burns and Levitt, and I must say that I was extremely satisfied with both of these fantastic training programs. The workshop this last Sunday was brilliantly conducted, and the learning experience was awesome.

It was amazing to see how they managed to include so much in just seven hours! But it didn’t even feel heavy.

I strongly recommend these workshops to every therapist all over the world! I do not want to miss a single one of these.

Dear Dr. Burns,

I attended your conference in Salt Lake yesterday. It was wonderful. Thank you very much. I’ve been clinician for 15 years and never has any conference been superior to yours! I’ve attended “Scared Stiff” three times over the years and I’m always pushed to the next level of thinking and understanding!

Thank you for your dedication and your willingness to share your incredible skill and knowledge. YOU ARE MY HERO!! I look up to you and your work!

Thanks again for your wonderful conference!

The following feedback was from participants in my first online webinar series.

Hi David,

This is Shahrzad from Montreal, Canada. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your webinars! I find them to be tremendously informative and helpful! I wish I had been trained under your supervision!!!

You have such a kind, compassionate, genuine, down-to-earth, and real presence! I truly love that!!!!! I have had many moments where I have laughed out loud and shed tears while watching your talk in these past few weeks!

Thank you for this great opportunity to learn from your expertise, experience, and wisdom!


Shahrzad Irannejad, PhD, Psychologist

Hi Dr. Burns,

Your presence and personality has made the webinars especially enjoyable. You come across as very humble, genuine, passionate, and caring, and I feel this is a presence to emulate and aspire to as I continue to develop my own therapeutic approach.

Thank you!
