The following is a poll concerning the teachings of the ancient Greek Stoic philosopher, Epictetus. In his classic book Mocha Pisarro Nights Women's Long Cold Shoulder Blouson Dress with Diamond Motif, 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.YYG Womens Middle East Muslim Loose Long Sleeve Arab Arabian Robes Maxi Dress 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.Desigual Women's Lena Woven Long Sleeve Dress

But lots of people just don’t buy it.

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.Black DressUWomen Winter Puffer Warm Stand Collar Outwear Short Anorak Jacket 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!Little lemon Summer Dress Women Short Sleeve VNeck ALine Party Mini Dress Vestidos New Office Swing Dresses

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.Coral bluesh Warners Women's Cloud 9 Wire Free Lift Bra 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.Black78 EDAPPLEJ Women's Sport Basketball Player TShirt Classic Short Tee Shirt Outdoor Design 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 Profile by Gottex Plus Size PrintedRuffle Swim Skirt! You can find all 30 + of the Feeling Good Podcasts if you DKNY Relaxed Cropped Hoodie; Tempest bluee (Medium)!

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.Women Drawstring Capri Pants Cropped Need A Pat Sport Sweatpants

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.
