Recent research and insights have given a new understanding of depression, not as a deficit in chemicals, but as a problem with neurogenesis (new brain growth and connection). Antidepressants may work by promoting brain cell and neuronal growth and connection, but there are other ways, within the grasp of therapists, counselors and addiction specialists that can make an immediate and lasting difference in helping relieve depression. This session will give three simple methods for relieving depression using insights from recent brain science.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Articulate a new model of depression based on new research on the brain.
  2. Utilize at least one new therapeutic intervention based on understanding the new brain science and depression.
  3. List three non-medication ways to receive depression.
