Feeling Good

New books are arriving at the Aldine Library! One of the new titles is Feeling Good Together by David D. Burns, MD. Dr. Burns is also the author of the bestseller Feeling Good: the New Mood Therapy. Both books deal with cognitive behavioral therapy, a form of treatment that explores patterns of thinking that lead to self-destructive actions.

Come take a look at these titles by Dr.
