    The Social Contagion of Depression: What Therapy Can Do That Antidepressants Can't

    Bellingham, Washington

    Depression is now the single greatest cause of human suffering and disability around the world. Evidence is growing that biology is less a factor in depressions spread while social forces must be recognized as the greater factor. In this one-day presentation we will explore the evidence that depression is much more a social than medical problem and consider the implications of that recognition for effective intervention. Specific skills and strategies for managing and even preventing depression will be presented.
