David Burns, MD wrote his book, Feeling Good forty years ago. It has sold over five million copies. He is an adjunct Clinical Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Standford University School of medicine. More than 50,000 mental health professionals have attended his workshops and millions have downloaded his weekly podcasts, Feeling Good.
His website is FeelingGood.com
Now he has a new book out, Feeling Great; The Revolutionary New Treatment for Depression and Anxiety.
This book offers a revolutionary idea, the paradoxical notion that your negative thoughts and feelings are actually caused not by pathology or mental disorder, but by what's most beautiful and awesome about you and your core values.
Research has shown that just by reading his Feeling Good book and doing the exercises it offers, over 60% of people can lift their anxiety or depression. Now, Dr. Burns believes he as a solution to many of the people who didn't respond.
