In this year of challenges for mental health, the very real losses and subsequent grief that so many have experienced have fueled rising rates of depression. Isolation during phases of the pandemic management has also fueled depression, and for those who were already struggling with depression, these conditions intensified it. Rate of depression and anxiety in people who have worked as medical and mental health providers and first responders have been staggering. There is hope for recovery for our clients as we treat depression with methods that will break into isolation, raise energy, and alter the depressive cognitive style that make it so hard to come out of depression. This session will also highlight methods that connect people to resilience and positive explanatory styles.

Join Dr. Margaret Wehrenberg, author of The 10 Best-Ever Depression Management Techniques, for this fresh look at managing depression, grief and loss in the post-pandemic world.
