Feeling anxious, helpless and depressed by all the tragedies in the news? Nearly 40 years after his five-million-copy bestselling book, Feeling Good, made a positive difference in the lives of countless people with its uplifting message: When you change the way you THINK, you can change the way you FEEL, and helped cognitive therapy become the most popular and extensively researched form of psychotherapy in the world, critically-acclaimed author and world-renowned clinical psychiatrist David D. Burns, M.D., brings the newest installment to his revolutionary research in Feeling Great: The Revolutionary New Treatment for Depression and Anxiety.
Now, Dr. David Burns brings us a radical new approach that makesultra-rapid recovery possible, even in a single two-hour, book-therapy session. Feeling Great emerged from 40 years of research on how therapy actually works and is based on this paradoxical idea:Your negative thoughts and feelings are NOT the result of some defect, like a chemical imbalance in your brain or a “mental disorder,” but from what is most beautiful and awesome about you and your core values. And the moment you realize this, recovery will be just a stone’s throw away.
According to the book, and in as little as a two-hour, book-therapy session, Feeling Great will help you:
1. Pinpoint and eliminate the powerful forces that keep you stuck;
2. Learn that your thoughts, and not the circumstances of your life, create all of your
3. Discover why depression and anxiety are the world’s oldest cons;
4. Crush the 10 types of distorted thoughts that rob you of happiness and self-esteem;
5. Learn why self-acceptance is the greatest change a human being can make.
Feeling Great is designed like a workbook, with 33 chapters grouped into seven sections, such as “How to Turn Depression and Anxiety into Joy,” “How to Crush Distorted Thoughts,” “Relapse Prevention Training” and more. The book also includes reflective quizzes to track your progress, case studies with anecdotes from real people and even a daily mood journal.
