Ten Things Therapists Need to Know about Depression

If you are a counsellor or psychotherapist please join me in November

I will be delivering this lecture to counsellors and psychotherapists at the Solent Group of Counsellors and Psychotherapists on 17th November.

I am still preparing the lecture but so far topics include:

  1. Why it is not possible to accurately diagnose depression?
  2. Why might a social model of mental illness help us empower our clients?
  3. What does neuroscience tell us a about how deression changes the brain?
  4. Why are antidepressants problematic?
  5. Does evolution predispose us to depressive reactions?
  6. What's the link between childhood and depression?
  7. How can we best help people who are experiencing depression?

I am hoping to put together some materials for non-therapists and will up-date my website when these are available.
