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