Depression (1 hr)
This 1 hour reading course will take you through some of what we know about the neurobiological basis of depression. [FREE FOR MEMBERS]
Depression short reading course has been taken from the book The Psychotherapist’s Essential Guide to the Brain. This short reading course will take you through the basics of depression and in particular major depressive disorder. Depression is pervasive in our society and is one of the most common mental health issues psychotherapists encounter in their practice. This course will give you an understanding of the neurobiological underpinnings of depression – at least as far as we know. It’s a complex disorder and we are on a steep learning curve, but we have a lot more understanding now than we did just a few years ago. This course will give you a foundation from which to understand your clients better and to better understand current research on the topic.
