Dr. Burns will describe his personal evolution from biological psychiatry during his psychiatric residency to cognitive behavior therapy, and then to the new TEAM-CBT, which he has recently developed. TEAM-CBT aims for extremely high-speed treatment using innovative cognitive and motivational (resistance-busting) techniques. He will invite questions from audience participants.
