About The Event

Training from the Human Givens College

Depression is now so common that all health professionals need to know how to lift it – especially as it can lead to suicide. This workshop has saved lives.

Until recently, depression was little understood, but now you can absorb the easy-to-learn psychological techniques that lift it quickly ... even in the severest cases. Antidepressants (though dangerous) can play a role in reducing symptoms, but research shows that appropriate counselling is the most effective way to lift even the most severe depression, and has a much lower rate of relapse.

What you will gain from attending:

  • Greater confidence in lifting depression and preventing suicides
  • New insight into why depressed people wake up tired and unmotivated, and what to do about it
  • Demonstrations of the skills that quickly break the cycle of depression, move people on — and prevent relapse
  • A profound understanding of why these work and are a big improvement on drug therapy (research shows that appropriate counselling is the most effective way to lift even the most severe depression, and has a much lower rate of relapse)
  • Practice sessions in using the skills and techniques yourself
  • A range of useful tips and strategies
  • Techniques for tackling rigid thinking and negative expectancy, and the pessimistic rumination that causes depression
  • Course notes, CPD Certificate and more...

Who should attend?*

  • All health and welfare professionals – since depression is now so common, it is crucial to understand it and know how to treat it quickly and effectively
  • Anyone whose life is affected by depression in any way – perhaps the staff or students you are responsible for at work present with depression, or a friend or family member is depressed
  • Anyone who wishes to prevent relapses
  • Anyone curious about how the treatment outcomes of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and solution focused brief therapy (SFBT) approaches can be improved by bringing them into line with the new findings from brain research
  • Anyone concerned about the side effects of drug treatments for depression, who would like to know about the easy-to-learn psychotherapeutic techniques that can lift depression quickly
  • Anyone who, for whatever reason (personal or professional), would like to better understand the causes of depression and be able to offer practical help to people who are depressed
