About depression training courses for therapists

It has long been understood that the complex condition known as depression entails more than simply feeling ‘down’ or in a low mood for a few days. It is, instead, a long-lasting mood disorder, characterised by adverse impacts on the sufferer’s ability to live their normal day-to-day life.

Anyone can experience depression, which is characterised by symptoms ranging from feeling sad, upset and tearful to restlessness, hopelessness and anxiety. It is thought that it can arise in any one person due to such factors as genetics, physical health problems, and/or stressful life events, examples of which may include abuse, neglect, being assaulted, or experiencing unemployment or the end of a relationship.

In diagnosing depression, doctors often assess the patient’s symptoms to determine whether their condition is mild, moderate or severe. Although, in its mildest form, depression may simply feel like being in low spirits – albeit while making everyday activities more difficult for the sufferer – the most severe cases of depression can be life-threatening, due to the risk of suicidal feelings.

With some of the specific identified types of depression including seasonal affective disorder (SAD), dysthymia, and prenatal and postnatal depression, various treatment approaches have been devised over the years that have been found to help with depression. Mental health professionals frequently use talking therapies – such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), group-based CBT, and interpersonal therapy (IPT) – to help sufferers relieve their symptoms.
