Depression doesn’t quite get as much “love” as anxiety on the continuing education front. Many clinicians feel they don’t need to pursue continuing education on the treatment of depression if they don’t “see those types of clients.” And the perception is that anxiety is more common (and carries less of a stigma) than depression. Well, as we are well aware from our graduate training, depression often co-occurs with anxiety, so it stands to reason that ALL of us need continuing education in the treatment of depression, no matter the client population or treatment setting we target or work with in our practice. To bolster this argument, “COVID depression” is a real thing, with the COVID/Depression connection well-documented in the latest medical literature. In fact, WebMD reports that in a COVID-19 survivor sample, over half of the studied subjects reported feeling depressed many months after recovering from the illness.
Please join us for a learning experience that will increase your ability to activate clients challenged by depression and low mood. Walk away with the confidence to use intuitive solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) skills and interventions immediately, no matter your therapuetic orientation. Discover how this powerful approach can be deployed to successfully treat even the most high-risk clients with depression and mood disorder symptomology. Modernize your clinical toolset to meaningfully engage with clients continually challenged by post pandemic woes that can result in self-harm and other high risk behaviors. In addition to these powerful SFBT tools adapted for mood disorders, this training also includes a set of helpful handouts and assessments tools, a Safety Action Plan, and a Mandatory Disclosure checklist you can use with clients, as well as a bibliography of helpful reading material for additional education.
2. The difference between problem solving and solution building and how that moves clients toward treatment goals more efficiently in the treatment of depression.
3. Define a client in SFBT; especially with regard to depressive symptoms.
