the revolutionary new treatment for depression and anxiety
"Do you sometimes feel ... Down, depressed, or unhappy? Anxious, panicky, or insecure? Guilty or ashamed? Inferior, inadequate, or worthless? Lonely, unwanted, or alone? For decades, we've been told that negative feelings like depression and anxiety are the result of what's wrong with us, like a personality defect, a "mental disorder," or a chemical imbalance in your brain. These messages create feelings of shame and make it sound like we're broken and need to be "fixed." Now, Dr. David Burns, author of the best-selling and highly acclaimed Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy, reveals that our negative moods do not result from what's wrong with us, but rather -- what's right with us. And when you listen and suddenly "hear" what your negative thoughts and feelings are trying to tell you, suddenly you won't need them anymore, and recovery will be just a stone's throw away. In his innovative book, Feeling Great, Dr. Burns, describes a new and revolutionary high-speed treatment for depression and anxiety based on 40 years of research and more than 40,000 hours treating individuals with severe mood problems. The goal is not just a rapid and complete elimination of negative feelings, but the development of feelings of joy and enlightenment. Dr. Burns will provide you with inspiring and mind-blowing case studies along with more than 50 amazing tools to crush the negative thoughts that rob you of happiness and self-esteem. You can change the way you feel! You owe it to yourself to FEEL GREAT!"--, Provided by publisher
