Feeling Good

Feeling Good

David D. Burns

Overview

Many of us struggle with feeling anxious, depressed or even worthless. But there are things we can do about it – with or without medication.

Dr. David Burns is a psychiatrist and professor emeritus at Stanford University who has been crucial in the development of cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT. In his book Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy, Dr. David Burns demonstrates proven techniques for diagnosing and understanding our moods, so we can start taking control of our feelings.

This book includes several role-play scenarios that show cognitive behavioral therapy in action, and debunks many of the unhelpful myths that surround both medication and therapy. In his own medical practice, Burns favors a dual approach where prescribed drugs are used in combination with cognitive approaches. While the book contains a comprehensive guide to antidepressant medication, its behavioral therapy techniques can be helpful on their own.
