The Seven Stages Of Healing Depression Without Antidepressants
James Gordon, M.D., says the disease-based analogy comparing depression to diabetes and the promise of antidepressants as a cure just doesn’t hold water.
He should know. Jim is the author of Unstuck: Your Guide to the Seven Stage Journey out of Depression, the director of The Center for Mind-Body Medicine, and a clinical professor at Georgetown University School of Medicine.
So what really works?
A combination of complementary approaches like acupuncture, meditation and relaxation practices, sound nutrition, creative imagery, movement, and physical exercise have been proven to be effective. The combination is different for each person.
According to Jim, the key factor in successfully healing depression without antidepressants is always the same: The client takes an active role in the healing process
Today’s clip is just one quick example of a technique that makes this approach so effective.
Join us for this Wednesday’s session with James Gordon to learn dozens more. He will demonstrate, illustrate with examples from his own caseload, and walk you through the steps of integrating this mind-body approach to healing depression with clients.
