There is no question that an epidemic of depression is affecting our youth – even before the current viral epidemic. Those children more at risk for depression by genetics, sexual identity concerns, neuroatypical conditions, or other mismatches between culture and themselves are more affected by the rising tide of social media. They face pressure to demonstrate their worth by being ‘relevant’ online and feel (legitimately) judged in the world that records and publishes their mistakes more than their successes. While typical signs of depression (worthlessness and inadequacy) are evident they may come disguised as anger, obsession with appearance or persistent boredom.
In this 3-hour session, Dr. Margaret Wehrenberg will outline 10 interventions that can lighten the burden of depression. The material is useful to clinicians, teachers or even any adult who can be available to the child or adolescent during those moments when their self-talk is dragging them down or their protective isolation prevents connecting with others who can encourage them. We will use case examples and discussion to identify ways to find the triggers for depression, stop the slide to despair, intervene in circular thinking and negative neural networks, and increase cognitive flexibility, among other aspects of reducing depression.
