Video Release: What is the Best Therapy for Depression?
Depression affects almost 1 in 10 Americans. Among the more common symptoms of depression are a persistent sad, or “empty” mood, feelings of hopelessness or pessimism, loss of interest in hobbies or activities, and decreased energy. Given how painful depression can be, how do you determine which type of therapy is best?
Given the large number of therapies that are available, with many being effective for some issues, but not others, it can be overwhelming to know which ones are effective for treating depression. Rather than being afraid therapy won’t help with your depression or trying to figure it out on your own, this video is going to show you how evidence-based research has done the work for you by identifying which approaches are most effective. This can then help you in deciding which therapist you might want to work with in treating the depression. As a bonus, you will learn some questions you can ask a therapist to help you decide if he or she will be a good fit for you.
