This audio course is designed for anyone who is dealing with depression or anyone who has a loved one who is dealing with depression. Depression is not just “in your head,” and healing is not simply a matter of “snapping out of it.” In this course, you’ll gain understanding about some of the normal processes of the brain and the neurological and chemical effects of depression which explain why it diminishes happiness, hope, and motivation. You’ll learn what is needed to overcome depression, and things we can do to help facilitate healing. Nothing in this course can be considered “medical advice,” since only a licensed healthcare professional is authorized to do that; however these lessons come from the unique perspective of someone who has been there and back again. Instructor Linda Bjork personally experienced depression for about five years, but experienced a joyful recovery using the techniques shared in this course.
