Crush Anxiety and Depression with Ultra-Rapid New Technique
San Francisco, CA, September 14, 2020 - Nearly 40 years ago, David D. Burns, M.D ., a pioneer in the development of cognitive therapy, wrote a book with an uplifting message: When you change the way you THINK, you can change the way you FEEL. Since its debut, Feeling Good has sold more than 5 million copies, and cognitive therapy has become the most popular and extensively researched form of psychotherapy in the world. Now in Feeling Great: The Revolutionary New Treatment for Depression and Anxiety (September 2020; ISBN: 9781683732884; $26.99, Hardcover), Dr. Burns brings us a book with another uplifting message: negative feelings like depression, inadequacy, and anxiety do not result from what’s WRONG with you, but what’s RIGHT with you.
We all know that many people have lived with depression and anxiety for years without tangible change. Why? Freud tried to solve this riddle, but failed. Forty years of research on how psychotherapy actually works have finally revealed the answer, and Dr. Burns shares innovative new techniques that make ultra-rapid change possible, even in a single, two-hour therapy session. Feeling Great is based on the paradoxical notion that 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’s 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.
In Feeling Great, you will:
1. Discover that depression and anxiety say something really good—or even great—about you and your core values!
2. Pinpoint and eliminate the powerful forces that keep you stuck
3. Learn that your thoughts, and not the circumstances of your life, create all of your feelings
4. Discover why depression and anxiety are the world’s oldest cons
5. Crush the ten types of distorted thoughts that rob you of happiness and self-esteem
6. Learn why self-acceptance is the greatest change a human being can make.
7. Let go of the idea that you have a “self” that is flawed, defective, inferior, or just not good enough
