David D. Burns, M.D.
is an Adjunct Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine and has served as Visiting Scholar at Harvard Medical School.
Dr. Burns has been a pioneer in the development of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a drug-free treatment for depression and anxiety which has become the most widely used and extensively researched form of psychotherapy in the world.
Dr. Burns has won numerous research, teaching and media awards, but is best known for his phenomenally successful self-help books — such as Feeling Good and the Feeling Good Handbook — which have sold more than 5 million copies in the United States alone.
In a national survey of American mental health professionals, Dr. Burns’ Feeling Good was the top-rated book — from a list of 1,000 self-help books — for patients suffering from depression.
American and Canadian mental health professionals “prescribe” Feeling Good for their patients more often than any other self-help book.
