Dr. Burns first book, Feeling Good, introduced cognitive therapy to the world when it was first released in 1980. Various research studies indicate that 50% to 65% of readers seeking treatment for moderate to severe depression improve significantly or recover within four weeks on their own, without any medications or talk therapy, and no longer need treatment.

Dr. Burns’ new book, Feeling Great, is based on 40 years of research on how this cognitive therapy actually works, and more than 40,000 hours of therapy with depressed and anxious individuals, and includes powerful new tools to melt away therapeutic “resistance.” This opens the door to ultra-rapid treatment for the first time.


Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the three basic principles of cognitive therapy
  2. Describe the causes of therapeutic “resistance"
  3. Explain why depression and anxiety do NOT result from what’s wrong with you, but from what’s RIGHT with you
