Treatment for Depression
Depression affects the whole
person, with symptoms affecting the cognitive, behavioral, emotional, spiritual
and physical. The individual treatments given below may only address one or two
areas of debilitation. But your whole person feels bad. The Feel Good
for Good self help program incorporates element of the treatments below as
well as other treatments to provide a holistic approach. You will feel
better not in just one aspect of your being, but in the whole person -- body,
mind and spirit.
Cognitive Therapy teaches that certain thinking patterns are
causing your symptoms by giving you a distorted picture of what's going on in
your life, and making you feel depressed anxious, or angry for no good reason,
or provoking you into ill-chosen actions.
Cognitive therapists believe that one's perceptions of situations
are important in the development of negative emotional states. They find that
negative emotions are created when the individual interprets situations with a
negative bias. For example, depressed patients may hold a negative view of
themselves, the world, and the future, which may cause or aggravate depressed
Behavioral Therapy helps you weaken the connections between
troublesome situations and your habitual reactions to them.
Behavior therapists believe that problem behaviors and skill deficits cause
and/or maintain emotional distress. They find that behavioral changes facilitate
mood improvements. For instance, learning relaxation skills leads to alleviation
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is obviously a combining of cognitive and
behavioral approaches. Once upon a time, behavior therapy did not pay any attention to
cognitions, such as perceptions, evaluations or expectations. Behavior therapy
only studied behavior that could be observed and measured. But, psychology
is a science, studying human thoughts, emotions and behavior.
Scientific research has found that perceptions, expectations, values,
attitudes, personal evaluations of self and others, fears, desires, etc. are all
human experiences that affect behavior. Also, our behavior, and the behavior of
others, affects all of those cognitive experiences as well. Thus, cognitive and
behavioral experiences are intertwined, and must be studied, changed or
eliminated, as an interactive pair.
The overall goal in cognitive behavioral therapy [CBT] is to modify one's
thoughts, beliefs, and perceptions, and to change one's usual pattern of
behaving. Modifying the way in which you think can facilitate both emotional and
behavioral change. Similarly, altering the way you act can result in cognitive
and emotional change. Essentially, we want you to feel more in control of your
own life. We want you to feel swell again.
Transpersonal Therapy believes that a person is not limited to being
identified with their personality; they are and can be more than that. The
term Transpersonal literally means beyond the person or personality.
It teaches you through contemplative practices how to calm your mind and body,
so you can feel better, think more clearly, and make better decisions.
Transpersonal therapists believe that human beings have the capacity to reach
undreamt levels of emotional and intellectual development.
Self-actualization will enable you and empower you to overcome your depression
and to do so for good.
