EP17 Speech with Discussant 01 - When Helping Doesn't Help - David Burns, MD and Jeffrey Zeig, PhD


Although there's been an overwhelming proliferation of new therapies for depression and anxiety, the controlled outcome studies have yielded disappointing results. Dr. Burns argues that this is because resistance has not been addressed, and describes a new approach called TEAM-CBT that solves this problem and promises superior outcomes.


Educational Objectives:

  1. Explain why therapy so often fails despite the therapist's sincerest efforts to help.
  2. Describe the research and clinical experience that led to the development of TEAM-CBT.
