Online registration for spring 2019 events will open on Thursday, December 6.
Join Dr. David Burns this summer in Calgary, AB, for his fabulous four-day intensive on the treatment of depression and all of the anxiety disorders with advanced CBT and TEAM Therapy techniques. This intensive training offers unique and exciting learning opportunities.
Here’s why: The group size will be strictly limited, providing you with an intimate and interactive learning environment. After Dr. Burns describes and illustrates a technique, such as the Interpersonal Downward Arrow, Five Secrets of Effective Communication, Paradoxical Agenda Setting, Hidden Emotion, Externalization of Voices, or Acceptance Paradox, you will have the opportunity to break off into dyads and triads to practice the technique with colleagues and receive immediate and helpful feedback on how you did.
You will have chances to work on your own personal and professional issues as part of the learning process if you choose to do so. As therapists working in the trenches, most of us feel anxious, frustrated, ashamed, burned out, inadequate or demoralized from time to time. This personal “patient” experience will boost your morale and make these techniques jump to life for you on a much deeper level. You will learn how to transform your own angst into joy, and you will become a more sensitive and effective clinician as well.
In the past nine years, over 2000 therapists have attended Dr. Burns’ four-day intensives in Canada. Based on the many phenomenal participant testimonials we’ve received, I think it is safe to say that this promises be one of the most vibrant and inspirational training experiences of your career.
Complimentary Lunch on Day 1 & 3!
TEAM-CBT is a transdiagnostic framework for conducting evidence-based therapy that includes four elements known to be related to positive treatment outcomes:
T = Testing: Self-report measurement of symptoms and the therapeutic alliance at every session with every patient
E = Empathy: Specific skills to help the therapist establish a warm therapeutic alliance and address alliance ruptures with each patient before proceeding to CBT Methods
A = Agenda Setting: Numerous tools to create a collaborative agenda with each patient and address motivation/reduce resistance to change before proceeding to CBT methods
M = Methods: 50+ cognitive and behavioral methods for different types of symptoms
For more information including a list of recent, peer-reviewed, relevant references that provide empirical support for each of the four aspects of the TEAM-CBT treatment/training framework please visit The Feeling Good Institute website.

“This was an excellent workshop and valuable for many professions. Please keep bringing CBT workshops to Alberta! The workshop was both professionally and personally helpful, and powerful, and enlightening.”
– Sara Maraj | Banff, AB | July 17-20, 2017
“So great. Learned a huge amount. I am a somatic focused practitioner and have been resistant to working with CBT. This has definitely opened a huge doorway of interest. Thank you.”
– Richmond, BC | July 6-9, 2016
“Outstanding. Dr. Burns is competent, knowledgeable, and very practical. More than that, he is wonderfully human. His ability to bring himself and his own vulnerabilities into the room super infused this conference.”
– Dave Flynn | Banff, AB | July 17-20, 2017
“David Burns is extremely knowledgeable, an effective presenter and an expert in his field. The workshop has exceeded my expectations. Thank You!”
– Mayes Pillay | Banff, AB | July 17-20, 2017
“Dr. Burns was great. Exceeded my expectations. I was not expecting so much interaction. Going form the pages of the Feeling Good Handbook and 10 Days to Self-Esteem to 3D in person has been so much more helpful for me.”
– Murray Walters | Banff, AB | July 17-20, 2017
“Overall, very well done. I appreciated David taking these techniques and humanizing them. Makes me excited to get back to work and start using some of these techniques and start practicing to hone in on my skills. I would definitely attend another workshop provided by David Burns. So refreshing to see him take such an interest in his patients and their overall care.”
– Edmonton, AB | June 6-7, 2016
“Dr. Burns is a warm, humble man. I love his down-to-earth approach, his humour and his personable manner. I loved the role-plays. I can use those in my sessions. He is an expert in this field and it comes across in his workshops.”
