Even though it is one of the most common presenting mental health issues, many clinicians have misguided notions regarding how to effectively address depression. A common belief is that depression is primarily a physiologically-driven caused issue, and that medical interventions will typically be the most effective in resolving symptomology.

And more than that, there are many non-medication-based psychotherapy interventions that can have great positive affect in helping individuals find relief.
In this brief training, psychotherapy expert, Bill O’Hanlon, will walk through 3 specific non-medication interventions in addressing depression.
- To explore some of the data regarding rates and causes of depression.
- To challenge some commonly held false beliefs regarding the causes and ideal treatments for depression.
