New Hope For Treatment-Resistant Depression

October 25, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - October 26, 2023 @ 10:00 pm

Even though diagnoses of depression correlate highly with a history of trauma, we generally forget to treat depression as a trauma-related disorder.  In this workshop, you will learn to help depressed clients learn to relate to their depressive symptoms with curiosity and mindfulness, rather than interpreting the symptoms as proof of hopelessness.  This webinar series will offer techniques for transforming the physical and cognitive symptoms using somatic interventions and by reinterpreting the depression as a communication from trauma-related parts of the personality.

Learning objectives:

  • Educate clients about depression as a somatic state, not just a psychological state
  • Identify 3 cognitive schemas that reinforce depressive states
  • Identify three body-centered interventions that increase energy and focus in depressed clients
  • Experiment with Sensorimotor Psychotherapy interventions that transform depressive beliefs
  • Implement a parts model for healing depressive symptoms
  • Discuss the use of the social engagement system and its role in evoking an internal sense of safety

This event is online from 9:00am – 1:00pm AEST
