Over the past four decades, volumes of research and numerous clinical innovations have revolutionized the treatment of depressive spectrum disorders. In this program, Dr. Burns describes four powerful models for treating depression and increasing self-esteem: the Motivational Model, the Cognitive Model, the Behavioral Model, and the Interpersonal Model, and illustrates how to bring these models to life for patients suffering from mood disorders, including bipolar disorder. The skillful integration of these four approaches often results in extremely rapid recovery. In fact, many patients who used to require months of intensive therapy can now be helped in just a handful of sessions, and will often respond in a single session. Recorded live.
