MC0003, Beyond Pills, Michael Yapko

Welcome to this intensive Master Class series, “Beyond Pills: Effective Psychotherapy with Depressive Clients.” This popular, illuminating series features internationally recognized expert, Michael Yapko, known for his work in the strategic treatment of depression. Throughout the series, you’ll learn about the latest, significant research in effectively helping depressed clients—without antidepressant medications.

These four sessions will cover such topics as why medicalizing depression has worsened the problem, reasons to be cautious about antidepressants, using hypnosis, mindfulness, and homework as part of experiential treatment, social factors as related to depression, and much more. In the second session, you’ll be able to watch this kind of treatment in action, with a video clip of Mike, a depressed and anxious client. The fourth session includes a question-and-answer session with Yapko to allow you to further incorporate this knowledge into practice.

Throughout this series, this Comment Board will be available as a way for you all to share thoughts and reflections about what was most thought-provoking and to ask questions of the presenter and of each other. We invite and encourage you to use this Comment Board as a forum for learning. Between sessions, please just take a few minutes to share what you think.
