About This On-Demand Webinar Recording

Depressed clients often pose a great challenge to mental health professionals. The intensity of the client’s distress often is so significant that desperate professionals think they must resort to more desperate “treatment” methods, such as electroconvulsive therapy or antipsychotic medication. The client appears to have no goals, no ambition to achieve goals, or no hope of achieving them. The depressed client’s thinking tends to be very pervasive and very stubborn, leaving the mental health professional quite pessimistic that a successful outcome will be achieved. And if that were not bad enough, there is always the possibility that the client might commit suicide, and that fact lingers in the professional’s mind.

The first thing that will become apparent from this seminar is that Dr. Pucci is not interested in helping people to feel better, but rather to get better. This seminar will teach you how to more accurately distinguish between “learned” and “not-learned” depression. This seminar will teach you how to overcome your own problems in working with depressed clients. You will learn how to engage clients with goals that matter to them and how to help clients develop an accurate assessment of their ability to achieve those goals. You will also learn how to help depressed clients correct their most stubborn depression-inducing thoughts, and how to overcome their resistance to do so. This seminar will give you a unique and powerful method to overcome hopelessness, thus correcting clients’ suicidal ideation.
