FAQs About TEAM-CBT
What is TEAM-CBT?
You’ve probably used or at least seen the Burns Depression Checklist or the Burns Anxiety Inventory. They were created by psychiatrist Dr. David Burns, who shifted his interests and research from psychopharmacology to psychotherapy in the 1970s. He initally learned CBT from Dr. Aaron Beck, then popularized CBT in the 1980s with his self-help book Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy, which has sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Through the years, he has evolved CBT into TEAM-CBT.
T stands for testing, E - empathy, A - agenda setting, and M - methods — the 4 key ingredients for successful therapy. You can look at each letter as a fluid phase of the therapy session. Read my approach page to get the break down of what each phase involves. I highly recommend listening to the Feeling Good Podcasts with Dr. David Burns to get a deeper understanding of this intricate and effective approach. You can search for the podcast on iTunes or any Android podcast player.
How is TEAM-CBT different from traditional CBT?
TEAM-CBT incorporates a systematic, yet flexible process to set us up for success with our clients.
There are tools to help us measure our effectiveness with clients.
It ismore relational than traditional CBT, focusing on specific ways to strengthen rapport, warmth, and connection with our clients.
The most unique aspect is having motivational, paradoxical tools to help us melt away resistance.
The 50+ methods are pulled from over a dozen of schools of therapy, making the tools more diverse and overall increasing our chances of success with finding the ones that will work with each client..

Can I receive TEAM-CBT certficiation from training with you?
Yes! All of my training hours with you can count toward your Level 1-3 TEAM-CBT Certification. Cick here for more information on becoming a Certified TEAM-CBT Therapist.
The most cost effective route to get Level 1 certification is to do one of Dr. Burns homestudies and read his ebook for therapists. I’d also highly recommend Mike Christensen’s 12-week training workshop for your Level 1 certification. He has been a wonderful trainer and friend. It’s completely worth the investment of time and money.
Hi, my name is Thai-An. I am an LPC/LADC and the first Level 4 Certified TEAM-CBT Therapist and Trainer in Oklahoma. I’m super passionate about spreading this awesome approach to other therapists who serve pregnant and postpartum women. I’ve dedicated my whole practice to serving postpartum women and have seen the vast majority of women who apply the tools I show them feel better. I’d love to take you on this life-changing journey, both professionally and personally, so you can come out the other side more confident and successful in helping your clients change their lives, and maybe even change your own life. I know it’s changed mine.
