You can attend any of these in person
or from home via Live Streaming

Sign up early because we nearly always sell-out in person one or two months before the workshop. Of course, there will be lots of skilled trainers to help the online participants with the small group exercises, so you will win either way.

Mark one of these on your calendar as well because my one-day workshops with Dr. Levitt are also awesome! It is always an honor to teach with my Jill, my esteemed colleague and friend!

Thanks, David

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!

Hi David

I just wanted to wish you and your family a very happy, healthy new year.

Meeting you and taking your workshop in Minneapolis was definitely the highlight of my year. Thanks so much again. Using your techniques has really made a difference in my work. My clients and I are very grateful to you.

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

#1: Hello David,

I just want to take a few minutes to let you know how much I enjoyed your first webinar session of Worried Sick. It flowed very well, and your presence was shining and reaching through the screen, despite the distance.  I heard your disappointment at not being physically with us, and I also wished we could have all been in the same room. I think going to events is a good way to challenge ourselves in a setting that is very different from the office. For me, to face the crowd, and have to interact with other professionals is always a stretch, and a good one. Many of us are introverts, and making meaningful conversation during unstructured moments is an important skill for life. I thought your comments on the topics of distance and the use of technology were genuine and wonderful, and they helped build closeness and community. Why I am so thankful you made this webinar is because it makes it available to so many more of us. It really fits into a perspective of democratization of knowledge. Personally, I am too far lost in the boonies -and working within a public health system with limited resources- to have affordable access to live workshops of this quality. This first video was excellent, and I am impatient to view the other ones. I thank you kindly for your teaching.

#2: 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!!!!!

By the way, in your first webinar, you mentioned how you laugh and/or cry together with the audience in your live workshops, and you were disappointed that this may be missing in a webinar format where everything is pre-recorded! Well, I don’t know about the other people who are watching these webinar series, but I can tell you that I have had 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!

Cheers,

Shahrzad Irannejad, PhD, Psychologist

#3. Hi Dr. Burns,

I’m a young psychotherapist in Montreal, Quebec, and I’ve been following your Worried Sick webinar series.

I just wanted to send you a brief note to let you know that I’ve appreciated the content of the webinars, and I am excited to continue learning about the T.E.A.M. approach in order to work more effectively with clients suffering from anxiety (of which I have many).

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!

Sincerely,

(asked to remain anonymous)
