Research indicates that most, if not all, current treatments for depression and anxiety are barely more effective than placebos, if at all. In most studies, fewer than half of the patients even experience a 50% reduction in depression after many months of treatment. Research also suggests that therapeutic failure nearly always results from patient resistance that hasn’t been skillfully addressed.
Most depressed patients believe they’re damaged, defective, or just “not good enough.” Perhaps you’ve felt that way at times. And although your patients may yearn for change, many of them seem to cling to feelings of depression and worthlessness, as well as the distorted thoughts that trigger these feelings.
In this workshop, you’ll learn about the two forms of resistance that can undermine the treatment of depression and anxiety. You will also learn how to quickly eliminate resistance and open the door to ultra-rapid recovery. Doctor Burns will bring these incredible methods to life with inspiring and dramatic video clips from live therapy sessions with two women recovered from years of depression, anxiety, shame, and anger in a single, two-hour therapy session.
Were these changes real? Can people really recover from chronic and refractory mood problems in a single therapy session? And can these changes last?
You will learn many powerful techniques to pinpoint and reduce therapeutic resistance, such as the Magic Button, Positive Reframing, Pivot Question and Magic Dial. You will also lean powerful techniques to crush the negative thoughts that cause depression and anxiety, including Explain the Distortions, the Downward Arrow Technique, the Experimental Technique, Examine the Evidence, the Externalization of Voices, Double Standard, Feared Fantasy, and more. Finally, you will learn fast, effective Relapse Prevention Techniques for lasting change.
Prepare to explore a revolutionary, paradoxical, and exciting new treatment based on the premise that depression and anxiety do not result from what’s wrong with you, but from what’s right with you!
