The following is a poll concerning the teachings of the ancient Greek Stoic philosopher, Epictetus. In his classic book 3D Bridge Flower Leaves Floor WallPaper Murals Wall Print Decal 5D AJ WALLPAPER, he wrote that people are disturbed, not by things, but by the views we take of them. In other words, it is impossible, according to Epictetus, to have any kind of feeling without first having a thought about what’s happening.3D Bridge River 405 Wallpaper Murals Wall Print Wall Mural AJ WALL AU Summer This is the basic premise of the Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) that I wrote about in my first book, Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy. In theory, this is an empowering idea, since we often can’t change reality, but we can change the way we think and feel about what’s happening.3D Bridge Tree House 8 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU Kyra

But lots of people just don’t buy it. 3D Bright Christmas 87 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU KyraThey argue that when something genuinely horrible happens, your negative emotions, such as depression, anxiety, anger anger are directly caused by the actual event. You, too, may believe that negative feelings are sometimes inevitable, and that it isn’t necessary to first have a negative thought before you can feel upset.3D Bright Flower 6977 Floor WallPaper Murals Wallpaper Mural Print AJ AU Lemon

What do you think? Take this poll and let me know!

There is a reason for this poll, beyond intellectual curiosity. This is part 1 of an informal experiment. I am going to repeat this poll, probably in August of 2017, after the next live therapy podcasts with a woman named Marilyn who is facing a truly catastrophic event.3D Bright Flying Flowers 668 Paper Wall Print Wall Decal Wall Deco Indoor Murals Dr. Matthew May and I treated Marilyn last Saturday morning at my home, and the entire session will be presented in three consecutive podcasts with commentary.

You can repeat the poll if you like at the end of the therapy with Marilyn, and we’ll see if you thinking has changed, or remains the same!3D Bright Palace 018 Wall Paper Wall Print Decal Wall Deco Indoor Wall

Also, stay tuned for these Feeling Good Podcasts featuring our live work with Marilyn.3D Bright Skylight 7 Ceiling WallPaper Murals Wall Print Decal Deco AJ WALLPAPER I think you will find the podcasts shocking, riveting, and inspiring, and hopefully helpful when you are facing traumatic events in your own life!

Hi web visitors,

Here is development #1: I am thrilled to announce that my free “Feeling Good Podcasts” with host, Dr. Favrice Nye, now feature LIVE THERAPY! Recently, I completed a session with my co-therapist, Dr. Jill Levitt, and our “patient,” a physician colleague who has felt like a failure in his role as a father–in spite of his many achievements in his career.3D Brillant Motifs Floraux Décor Mural Murale De Mur De Cuisine AJ WALLPAPER FR Many of us (including yours truly) know how intense that pain can be of feeling that you are defective, or that you have not lived up to your goals in life.3D Broken Wall Car 76 Wall Paper Exclusive MXY Wallpaper Mural Decal Indoor I think you will find the session heartwarming, inspiring, and educational, especially if you want to learn more about how to use TEAM-CBT in your personal life or in your clinical work with clients. Drs. Nye, Levitt, and I are tremendously grateful to our “patient” for making himself vulnerable so that others can see how the new techniques actually work in real-world settings.

The initial response has been tremendous. You can find the first one if you 3D Boy Girl 754 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU Kyra! You can find all 30 + of the Feeling Good Podcasts if you 3D Boy Girl Lawn 83 Wall Paper Murals Wall Print Wall Wallpaper Mural AU Lemon!

Development #2 is that my article, “When Helping Doesn’t Help,” is the featured article in the March / April (40th Anniversary edition) of the Psychotherapy Networker magazine. I am very honored and proud to have the chance to publish in that prestigious magazine. The article describes the research and clinical experience that led to the evolution of TEAM-CBT, and includes a beautiful and inspiring vignette of a woman treated successfully in a single (extended length) therapy session for severe depression and anxiety following decades of violent abuse. CLICK HERE to link to the article.

I want to thank the editor, Richard Simon, who planted the seed and pushed me to write the article! This will be a chance to spread the word about TEAM-CBT, since they reach out to a huge number of practicing clinicians.3D Brown City bluee 72 Wall Paper Exclusive MXY Wallpaper Mural Decal Indoor Wall

And here is development #3: My article entitled,  “Can depression be successfully treated in two hours? TEAM therapy provides hope for high-speed recovery without drugs” is featured in the current issue of the The Therapist: Magazine of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists.
