Do you have clients that are struggling to find lasting relief from anxiety, depression, addiction and relationship problems—despite multiple sessions of work?

David Burns, MD, one of the originators of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and an expert in treating depression and anxiety, explains that therapists often overlook a key element to change—the client's own willingness to get better. These are the clients that consistently push back against your therapy methods and then complain about the lack of therapeutic progress.

That's why he developed the evidence-based T.E.A.M. approach to therapy that is designed to help you improve your ability to offer rapid outcomes—regardless of what therapeutic method you prefer. Crafted from over 40 years of research and clinical practice, this powerful approach offers an effective roadmap to motivate the client to work along with your therapy methods instead of being combative to them—which can drastically speed up the timeframe for healing and elimination of symptoms.

Now in this revolutionary online master class, you'll have the unique opportunity to see first-hand the dramatic results that this approach can offer. You'll meet a client named Karen who has been living what she describes as "nine years of hell"— time of severe depression following a traumatic experience. Until now, despite numerous treatments and therapy sessions, nothing has helped her. Watch as Dr. Burns guides Karen step by step to help her break free from the crippling anxiety and guilt, to finally realize extraordinary resolution—all in one moving and incredible session.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn to speed up healing and transform your client outcomes with Dr. David Burns' practice-enhancing T.E.A.M. approach.

The Motivation Revolution
In David Burns's view, today's therapists radically underestimate clients' reluctance to change the status quo of their lives, despite their apparent discomfort and suffering. In this seminar recording, Dr. Burns demonstrates a paradoxical approach that "encourages" resistance and turns it inside out to promote genuine motivation for making a real change, and for the effort necessary to achieve it.
