Behavioural Solutions to Depression That Work with Dr. Colleen E. Carney (Vancouver, BC)

March 16 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join us for this one day workshop designed for all health care providers looking for solutions to managing Depression in a variety of health care settings.

You don’t have to have mental health expertise to effectively incorporate these concrete strategies into your health care practice to more effectively support your clients who are experiencing Depression!

Major depression is a huge contributor to the global burden of disease and is the leading cause of disability worldwide (Ferrari et al.,2010; World Health Organization, 2017). Depression has symptoms that can impair motivation and sap energy, so that clients understandably can feel stuck in multiple domains in their life.

When people feel like they cannot move towards what they want, they can feel hopeless. Health providers need evidence-based, easy to deliver strategies for their clients with depression to help with depression symptoms, as well as help them with inertia and take action in their recovery.

Behavioural activation is an evidence-based treatment for depression (Martell, Dimidjian, & Herman-Dunn, 2010) that helps clients identify behaviours most likely to create momentum towards feeling better, and to test out strategies to enact these mood-boosting behaviours
