There are multiple explanations and theories to explain the creation of anxiety, depression and trauma creation. Many emphasize pathology, permanence of conditions and use multi-syllable words and encourage medical interventions to treat symptoms. This paradigm is often not effective for improving the lives of individuals treated. This course looks at non-medical underpinnings to conceptualize the creation of anxiety, depression and trauma. This conceptualization when understood by the clinician; makes them a better facilitator and co-creator in the treatment process. A natural, holistic understanding also empowers the clinician and client and moves all parties involved closer to health.

Educational Objectives:

  1. List three common threads of anxiety, depression and trauma.
  2. List two questions to elicit hope and optimism for clients.
  3. Describe anxiety, depression and trauma in a non pathological way.
