It is never easy to face a day with depression, but with advent of social distancing and self-isolation, the risks for people with depression have escalated.

In this webinar we will look at what is at the heart of some of those risks and through case examples and discussion offer help for people with depression.

Peg will address the challenges for therapists working with depressed clients via online counselling alongside challenges that are specific to context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will explore how the uncertainties of the outcomes of this pandemic create challenges for persons with a depressive cognitive style and how to break out of those. We will examine ways to raise depressed energy when people feel stuck at home. And we will discuss the many ways people are experiencing loss and how mislabeling grief as depression prevents the processing that will lift people out of grief and into more hopeful thinking.

You will learn—

  • How to clarify the impact of the depressive cognitive style so that you can help clients from children to older adults identify tendencies towards absolutist thinking and generalizations.
  • About 3 specific ways to raise cognitive and physical energy even within “stuck-at-home” parameters.
  • How to identify the grief over loss, disappointment, and death that some are calling depression
  • About 5 creative ways to process through the grief.
