The latest research shows that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a highly effective tool in combating Depression.  In this course you will learn specific CBT techniques that will help you understand the sources of Depression, how to cope with these feelings and specific steps designed to help you stop feeling depressed.  As you master the techniques in this course you will be creating new neural pathways in your brain.  This course will help you physically change how your brain operates simply by applying your willpower and your brain in tandem toward a shared goal: Coping with and combating feelings of Depression.

Content and Overview

With this course I’ve distilled hours and hours of experience working with clients down to 25 lectures that cover everything you need to know about the nature of Depression and why you are suffering from these feelings.  You’ll explore the role Depression plays in your life.  You’ll examine the importance of identifying and owning your feelings.  You’ll learn how to consciously activate your body to unconsciously calm your mind.  You’ll discover, and really believe you have a choice when it comes to reacting to negative events or anticipating the future.

When you’ve completed this course you’ll have tools that you can use over and over again to combat the negative effects of Depression.  You’ll be equipped to find and anticipate hope in the future.  You’ll uncover levels of gratitude for yourself and find increased closeness and intimacy with loved ones.

Each short video has a real-world “homework” assignment that should take about a week to complete.
