To treat depression, we must know what causes it. And by learning to assess each patient response, we can figure out what causes depression even in the therapy. Then we can address the cause and help the patient overcome her depression.
In this videotape presentation of a therapy session, we will learn how to identify what makes patients depressed so we can help them recover. The patient had suffered for years in spite of various therapies. She had a pattern of overworking, doing the work of others, and not being able to stand up for herself. Her husband was unemployed by choice, so she was the sole source of support. Due to her self-criticism, she couldn’t see her genuine capacities and strengths.
Through the moment-to-moment analysis of the session, we will learn how to support depressed patients, how to help them build the inner strength they need to face the feelings they have feared, and how to help them bear together with us what they could not bear alone.
This one-day workshop will take place at Ersta Bräcke Sköndal Högskola on the 6th of March 2020. For information and registration, download this flyer.
