Depression has been referred to as the “common cold” of psychiatry due to its prevalence and tendency to spread outward. This webinar will review the differences between “feeling down” and clinical depression. Focus will be on what depression looks like and factors that may influence the development of depression. We will also explore these issues within the helping relationship.
This webinar is a companion to the webinar entitled: Depression – Practical Intervention Strategies
