New Hope for Treatment-Resistant Depression

September 29 to October 1, 2022 | Thursday to Saturday 5:30pm - 9 pm (Central European Time)

The very nature of major depression often defeats our best therapeutic efforts: how can clients change when they have no hope or interest? It is not surprising that treatment-resistant depression often defies the efforts of skilled therapists and effective medications, leaving clients defeated and discouraged or even more depressed. Even though diagnoses of depression correlate highly with a history of trauma, we generally do not treat depression as a trauma-related disorder.

How can we help chronically depressed individuals more effectively?

Using interventions drawn from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, you will learn to help clients relate to their depressive symptoms with curiosity and mindfulness, rather than identifying with them, and to understand them as symptoms communicated by trauma-related parts of the personality. This webinar will offer techniques for transforming the physical and cognitive symptoms through changes in posture, breath, and energy.

An interpreter will accompany this online seminar and translate consecutively from English into German and vice versa.

The lecture parts are recorded and can then be viewed on our website in the download area.
