David Burns, MD is an Adjunct Clinical Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Stanford Medical School, and has served as visiting scholar at the Harvard Medical School. He is author of the phenomenally successful Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy (> 5 million sold) and host of the popular Feeling Good Podcast (> 5 million downloads).

Dr. Burns was a pioneer in the development of CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) and is the founder of the new TEAM-CBT, which is featured in his latest book, Feeling Great. He has received numerous awards for his research and teaching, including the prestigious A. E. Bennet award for his research on the now-defunct “chemical imbalance” theory of depression and the Irma Bland Teaching Award from the American Psychiatric Association.

More than 50,000 mental health professionals have attended his training programs throughout the United States and Canada.

He is currently working on a Feeling Good App which he believes will outperform human therapists as well as antidepressant medications in the treatment of depression.
