Dr. Burns incorporates inspiring case studies and exciting practice exercises, along with a live demonstration with an anxious audience volunteer on the evening of Day 1 so you can see how these new techniques work.

You will see compelling videos from actual sessions, including a six-minute cure of a woman struggling with ten years of severe depression and panic attacks as well as a two-minute cure of a woman struggling with the same kind of OCD/germ phobia that crippled Howard Hughes.
