I got over that somehow time heals? In January it came back full force, I think from some major events that I perceived as negative aging, new retirement but without a plan on how to use my time, and heart palpitations probably from worry about the first two things. I went on anti depressants and went through some intensive professional cognitive therapy not referencing your book material but I think some similar concepts were introduced.
Before I was even done with the therapy I started feeling great…. On a get away long weekend with my wife last week the depression came back full force. I am just so sick of this roller coaster.
At the top of it I am great…my normal me. I should also mention that I should be hopeful because of all those years not being depressed, and even in the most recent bouts I do come out of it. But each time I am depressed I think it is going to stay with me forever. It is probably irrational, I know.
The Feeling Good Handbook
Sorry for taking up so much space on my problem. Have you read any of my books, or listened to the Feeling Good Podcasts? Hi Dr Burns, I want to ask you a question. There is a theroy that goes like: What do you think about this topic? Do we need an interest to motivate us ,when doing a job? Great question! My answer is: While it is nice to be really interested in your work, there is no rule that you HAVE to be! When I was in college I had summer jobs that some people would not find very interesting.
I sorted checks at a local bank all day long. I also did pick and shovel construction work in the hot summer in Phoenix, Arizona. I loved both jobs, and was grateful to have work, even though the work itself was not interesting. I am excited about being responsed to so quickly!
Your idea gives me more conifidence to finish my job. Thanks to you and Fabrice for such an informative and entertaining podcast. I listen during my commute and often laugh out loud at your playful interactions or editorializing. Briefly, parental alienation can occur in the setting of a high conflict divorce: Dr Craig Chidress also in CA has written about the process and pathology. If the child is willing to continue seeing the targeted parent, their receptivity to normal parental authority is extremely compromised.
I just started reading Feeling Good Together and hope that improving my communication with her might lessen the negative impact of this situation. Would love to have you at the summer intensive. With regard to the second question, I suggest you contact Rhonda Barosky in our group, and will send you her email separately!
Thanks, david. Hi Dr Burns I am zly,who have asked you a question about whether Cost Benefit Analysis can be used in non-emotional area,such as applying for a job or not. And yesterday, i found that you had allready answered my question in Feelinggood Podcast 61!. From your Podcast,I generally knew that you talked about a more sophiscated tool called Decision Making Form.
However,since English is not my mother language and my listening skill is very limited, i had some difficulty in understanding the details of Decision Making Form.
Would you please tell me again how to make and use the Decision Making Form ,by written language? Thanks Z L Y! It is too much explanation for this forum. Im very interesting in your Ideas So if I can — plz — text with u abuot this thing , I think that I can provide something ….
Also, my book, When Panic Attacks, might help. Thanks so much, david. If I correct the negative thoughts today … and same thoughts come again tomorrow… should I discuss it second time? Thanks so much! Important question! Respected sir, I am a medical professional, general surgeon to be specific. I wanted to ask the difference between your two books: Felling Good the new mood therapy and Feeling good the handbook If i was to read both of them, which one should i start with?
Or shall i skip the first one and directly go for feeling good the hand book? After that, there are two newer specialized books that might interest you, When Panic Attacks, which is on rapid, drug-free treatment for all the anxiety disorders, and Feeling Good Together, on how to develop more loving and satisfying relationships with family, friends, colleagues, and patients.
You can find any of my books at Amazon. Thanks, Dhaval! I am a therapist would came across dr. It changed my life. By the time I began practicing I had read the Hanbook. The handbook is a resource I require of all my clients. It reviews topics of mood, habits and relationships.
However I find the feeling good new mood therapy offers additional help for anger issues. When panic attacks is the resource I recvimend in addition to handbook for anxiety problems.
Hope this is helpful. I am not very clear about the usage of Daily Activity Schedule. Here are my questions: In the Prospective column,is it ok to write out 2 or 3 activities in each time slot? Some activities seem to take less than 10 miniutes to finish,like brushing teeth,boiling water,as a result of which most part of the time is not used.
You can do these exercises in the way that works best for you! There are no rigid rules. However, what I have observed over the years is that those individuals who actually DO some of the homework exercises seem to do the BEST in terms of improvement!
Good luck, and thanks, Z-L-Y! For a long time, there was an idea that puzzled me: What is wrong with my idea? I want to get rid of this idea, because this idea makes me a bit uncomfortable, and this idea seems to be somewhat evil. And I am ashamed of having this kind of idea. In one of the early chapters, I discuss the difference between healthy and unhealthy negative emotions. Neurotic guilt is not the same as healthy remorse. The most important difference is this. However, the thoughts that cause healthy negative feelings are un-distorted, while the thoughts that trigger unhealthy feelings like neurotic guilt are always distorted.
Thanks for a very important question! In Chapter 4, you did distinguish between healthy negative feelings and distorted negative feelings. I am still very curious: If the healthy negative feelings result from undistorted thoughts, then is there a possibility that an undistorted thought be intentionally or mistakenly changed?
Can non-distorting ideas be changed? Thanks, Zly, you have a terrific philosophical interest! I was a philosophy major in college, so i share your curiosity about such matters.
I am a psychiatrist, and my goal is to help people with things they want help with. The current discussion has gotten a bit theoretical and abstract. When this happens in therapy I ask the patient if there is something specific he or she wants help with, and also as the patient to describe one moment when he or she was upset and wants help with what was going on at that time. This helps to narrow the focus and make for a productive session!
Thanks for your answer and kind comment!
Am I right? In short, different feelings results from different thoughts. Is it an experiment proofing that thoughts leads to emotions? Or where to find relevant information on the internet? The ten cognitive distortions are listed in all my books. That is how you find out if a thought is distorted, not by the behavioral consequences as you mention. I give quite a few common sense examples about the causal connection between thoughts and feelings in my books, like the story of the man driving down the railroad track with a train coming described in the Feeling Good Handbook.
It is hard to do research on this topic,, but I did a causal modeling study at the Stanford Hospital using data from the start and end of a number of cognitive therapy groups. The findings showed a direct and large causal connection of thoughts on feelings and a smaller reciprocal causal connection of feelings on thoughts. This was a study with structural equation modeling techniques.
I did not attempt to publish it, however, and cannot remember why. I used to do a lot of statistical analyses of data, and sometimes just did extra analysis that were not the main focus of the research out of curiosity. At any rate, there is a necessary condition for emotional upset: You have to have a negative thought in your mind.
There is also a sufficient condition for emotional upset: You believe the negative thought. For the most part, the theories of psychology and psychiatry have not been validated through research, and this is a huge problem in the field. I used to publish articles in psychology journals testing many popular theories. In all cases, the theories proved to be false, not validated! Well,I guess what you want to say is: And evidence showed that thoughts lead to feelings ,instead of feelings leading to thoughts.
Hope I have correctly understood your idea this time! In addition, negative feelings trigger more negative thoughts. So there is a vicious cycle, with negative thoughts and feelings reinforcing each other. In cognitive therapy, we try to interrupt that loop by challenging the distorted thoughts.
The moment you stop believing a distorted negative thought, you will in most cases feel immediate relief! How can people prone to anxiety can overcome their fear of confrontation. I think such people have trouble expressing even healthy anger which in turn contributes to their anxiety more. Is this because of their faulty belief that others are more powerful and can cause harm to them?
Or they genuinely believe they are inadequate because of their anxiety? Rajesh, This is an excellent question for the next David and Jill Show.
Will send to her and print it out, too. Thanks David.
Feeling good the new mood therapy - David D. cheap-diet-pills-online.info
Will patiently wait for undoubtedly an excellent answer from David and Jill. I hope so too! No so sure about a good answer from David, but a great answer from Jill is almost a certainty! Yes it is.
Maor Katz, FGI david. We sometimes share our Daily Mood Logs with each other. When we are with friends we often see distortions in their thoughts too. Hi Matthew, Thanks! Great question that i actually addressed in my Feeling Good Handbook.
In Feeling Good New Mood therapy,you said that in order to reverse the twisted thinking, the first step is to record it on paper as soon as i capture the automatic thoughts , and then find.
However, I think,it seems that for people who are doing a dangerous work , capturing. Then is it same effective if i do the first,the second and the third step after work? I will work in a very dangerous environment. The rules I need to abide for this job are very strict to protect personal safety, and a distraction at work will results in.
So ,it seems not realistic for me to write down the automatic thought immediately when i am at work. Is it OK to do the three steps after work? You can work on negative thoughts any time it is convenient. Thanks for the great question, Zly!
Burns Thank you for your book, the Feeling Good Handbook! The techniques have been very helpful to me. Thank you in advance for your help. Again, your comment is general. I would need two or three examples of specific negative thoughts you want help with.
A few months ago, I got a seemingly normal stomach bug and got sick with dehydration. That ordeal left me with newfound anxiety and panic attacks.
I had never in my life experienced that kind of anxiety before. I developed fear of going out or being alone. I even got a mild panic attack in the shower which left me scared and embarrassed. Burns, you are an inspiration! Within 3 days, I was back to myself. Every time I felt like I was falling onto the rut of negativity, I gave myself the talk and I questioned the lie I was believing.
As someone, who had never suffered from shyness or anxiety, I had been unable to fathom the power negative thoughts can have on your personality. I can say this with conviction now that I am so glad I had this negative experience, because it evolved my mind!
It led me to read your books and they forced me to introspect!
I had never taken a day off in my life and I realised I had exploited my mental health by constant stress. I am so glad I am back to myself again. The last time I felt anxious was months ago! I have gifted feeling good to my dad and my husband too! I want everyone in this world to read it. Inspired by your book and as an avid meditation practitioner, I have written a short article on the relationship between CBT and pranayama and I would be highly fortunate, if you would spare 4 mins and read it.
Thanks Ashima! I deeply appreciate your kind note and wish you luck in your research career! I look forward to reading the link, too! Thank you so much Dr Burns! However, now that I think, it seems rather naive of me to introduce such a humble article to someone of your brilliance! Please just think of it as a 25 year old trying to impress her biggest role model in medicine. Ok, thanks, is very difficult to say in just a sentence or two, but it is a relationship with a relative who was abusive to me while I was growing up, later we were friendly but it was always a very fragile relationship and she never apologized or acknowledged the abuse in any way.
I am not trying to repair the relationship for many reasons, but mostly because she refuses to talk to me, and would never talk about our problems from the past. Thank you in advance for your response! I just wanted to add, thanks to my wonderful husband children I have moved on and have a great life.
Your question is very general. Have you read them and done the written exercises? Certainly a good place to start! Yes, I have, but say you have a thought like just a memory of something abusive that happened, like she threatened to drown me in the bathtub when my parents were at work.
Cannot treat you but in person might suggest cognitive flooding, making the memory as awful as possible until it loses its power to upset you. Try this with a therapist! I am a 43 yrs old man.
Up to now, I never had a romantic relationship with a woman. I sometimes feel like I am stuck in a deep well that I will never come out of, I get really depressed when I see happy couples around me and think such a life is second class and tasteless. How could I cope with my negative feelings? Hi armagan, I am sorry you are plagued by social anxiety, something I used to struggle with myself!
You can also find some referrals perhaps at http: Hope this information is helpful to you! Burns, The Feel Good Book transformed my life. I got it from the recommendation of my psychotherapist I read and did these techniques a few years back, but as of late I have not been consistent with it and feel my anxiety creeping back. My question is: How do I become consistent with it? On the 4-step sheet where it talks about thoughts, identifying the distortions and so forth which is very effective would you suggest I carry that sheet everywhere I go to be consistent?
You can do that, the important thing is to continue doing the written exercises until you are entirely free of depression. When the negative thoughts return, do the writing again.
Really appreciate your kind comments and support! Dr Burns. I had to do one year and half of going once a week to group therapy as I chose that over one to one. I was totally transformed. I no longer take anti depressants! The gp had me on these for 20 years! I found CBT!
I still read your book just to keep me in check! Very much! My therapist Jim who taught my group in cambridge UK. Your book and my bible are my best books. For truth! And freedom. Stay well. That is so awesome. Sarah, thanks! And congrats! By the way, I also prefer groups. Can you please help me? No sure, but you can get eBook or audio of Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy, so that might be helpful to you. Thanks for providing great content, with informative information. Please continue with the same pace and style to enlighten the minds.
Feeling Good was innitially recommended to me by a friend who had gone through a harsh break-up, he used your techniques to cope with the sadness and all the negative feelings that come with it.
I have read it in June this year and since then have been consistently happier. The frequency and duration of my mood swings has decreased considerably. I have even become better and more confident at my job, and interpersonal relationships. The chapter on perfectionism really spoke to me, I have been applying the techniques to overcome it and have been very successful so far.
I have achieved more of my goals and have become less of a procrastinator since then. Thanks, think I answered but got email again. Appreciate your comments! Hope others read Feeling Good, too! Working on new book now. Best wishes David.
Will eagerly wait for the new book to come up. Would be great if you have plans to cover topic or case studies to overcome work place stress, burnouts due to long hours, overcritical colleagues, short and unexpected turn around time to deliver, fast pace changing technologies and job roles and insecurities that are the common problems today that many suffer.
Thanks, Rajesh. One helpful technique for those problems is called the Daily Mood Log! Another is called the Relationship Journal! Keep the good questions coming! Burns, anyway. I respect and trust your intelligence, experience and profession. I have read your books and they were very useful for me. I have a question, is hypnotherapy effective or useful?
Some doctors says it is useless and waste of time and money. Than you. Hi A Person, hypnosis is not a treatment per se, it is just a modality you can use for some patients.
You can sometimes do therapy more rapidly if the patient is in a trance. Hypnosis is just one of more than methods I use in therapy.
Most methods can be helpful for some individuals, but I find I most patients recover quick;ly and completely without hypnosis.
So, can it be used for anxiety disorders? Psychologists say by dint of hypnosis, we can learn our childhood traumas, even 6-months-old, is it true? Hello Dr Burns, I suffered my first panic attack 42 years ago.
Regards, Tony. Hi Tony, Thanks for the question! I suggest you read my book, When Panic Attacks. You might find the answer to your question, and more! Hi Charles, Sorry to hear that. It is so easy to treat. Have you read my book, When Panic Attacks? Can get it on Amazon! Yes I think when Panic attacks by Dr. Burns is one of the best books written on the subject. It has loads of techniques along with good material to deal with physical manifestation of the anxiety and panic that I think no other book might offer.
I also think Meditation done correctly can also help to deal with the symptoms effectively and apply the CBT techniques more effectively.
Do you agree David meditation can help? Lots of people are strong enthusiasts for meditation, but I do not use it or see it as one of my top techniques, to be honest.
Some people like prayer, some like yoga, some like relaxation training, some like exercise, some like reading. These can all be useful and healthy, but not, to my way of thinking, specific methods. I do acknowledge that LOTS of people will disagree, of course!
I have read your article; It is very informative and helpful to me. I admire the valuable information you offer in your articles. Thanks for posting it. Hey, thanks, manpower! So cool of you to write to me! Thank you for the feeling good book and God bless you for all the help you provide to others.
I was wondering if you had any workshops in the New York Area I could as attend because I feel I will need that as well? Doctor Burns, do you believe in the big five personality traits model? For example,i got a score of 67 on. So, suppose I did the exercises offered in your book, and developed a more realistic outlook of life and myself, then does it follow that my personality traits get more or less changed? Great question, Zly, the quick answer is yes, you can definitely change these kinds of problems.
Will try to address in more detail in an Ask David, as it is an important question, and the answer has to do with specificity.
David tends to be overly skeptical at times; 2. David is often wrong! Hi david,many days passed since your last reply,in which you gave me a quick answer. I am waiting for your Ask David sinc then,but there is no further messages…Did you forget to write an Ask David ,or because of some other reasons?
Hi Zly, we have at least one ask david recorded that has not yet been published, but will be. Can you remind me what your question was. Hard to keep track as I received quite a few.
You always ask really good questions! I am a 23 years old, medicine student from Turkey. I was in a little bit depression because of failure in my lectures and my social life.
Hello Dr. However, I have a unique problem in that my wife has had low self esteem and anxiety issues for years, and for the last few years they have been directed at me. She fears that I will lose my temper and yell at her or our children. It got to a point where she filed for divorce and we now live separately. To make things worse, she copes by complaining and crying to her sister, and mother, feeding each other, reinforcing and rationalizing their fears and anxiety.
I see multiple cognitive distortions that she has such as completely discounting the positive, catastrophizing, and obsessing over negative events of years ago. I have mentioned CBT to her, but it is of no use as she thinks it is me who needs help. Is there a way I can help her realize that something like CBT would help her as well as our kids?
It does seem hopeless to me. Thank you and Kind Regards, Al. My take on it at any rate! However, I have written a book on relationship conflict called Feeling Good Together. It is a radically different approach from what I describe in my books on depression and anxiety, and it requires: Lots of practice, much like playing the piano. You have to be super determined to learn, and you have to work at it.
You will find out, perhaps, about some errors you may be making. I have a bad way to compare my self with the others. I have a lot of shame and culpabilities too. Yes when i was a children i was been sexual abused and violence against me.
