Depression

Most people will experience the feeling of depression at least once in their life. Every one of us has painful, and unjust things occur in our lives. Each of us lose people or things which are important to us and experience unpleasant events that are beyond our control.

For some, these are just the natural ups-and-downs of life and are weathered with an understanding that the future will hold depressionmore promise. For others, these events will trigger overwhelming feelings of despair and anxiety, which make it practically impossible to imagine anything being any different or better.

What makes the difference between those in the first category, and those in the second?

Why Am I Depressed?

The answer is not a simple one and it has nothing to do with willpower, intellectual ability or physical strength. There is no single cause for depression. It seems that depression most frequently arises out of a potpourri of thoughts, behaviours, and interactions with others. Sometimes a biological factor, a naturally occurring chemical deficiency or overload, requires the use of medication for effective treatment of depression.

Through rigorous examination of all potential treatments for depression, including psycho-pharmaceuticals, three therapies have been identified as most successful and exceptionally beneficial when offered together. They are: Interpersonal Therapy (focusing on identifying and correcting social skills and deficits); Cognitive Therapy (focusing on identifying and correcting distortions of thoughts); and Behavioural Therapy (focusing on diminishing unhelpful behaviours while expanding on beneficial ones.)

At The CEDRIC Centre, we understand the need for attention to each of these areas, and offer a treatment program for depression that encompasses our thoughts, behaviours, and interpersonal relationship skills. With our support, you will be able to heal the current depression in your life and develop skills that will allow you to take an active role in preventing further episodes of depression. This is effective and lasting change.
