Depression typically contains elements of lethargy and ruminative cognitions that stem from different underlying causes: neurobiology alone, situational stressors, trauma or aversive childhood experiences. Most people seek treatment when they feel unable to meet life’s demands for energy at home or work. This session will focus on techniques that work well in our telehealth world, planning immediate depression interventions that lift the energy or turn the cognitions toward more positive thoughts and actions. You will learn pragmatic methods that allow your clients to become more productive and create new, more positive cognitions, tapping the power of neural networks to break the hold of depressive cognitions.

I took the Board Certified-TeleMental Health Provider Training Certification Course in 2018, I feel so lucky to have found the TeleHealth Certification Institute. It's a top notch training center which has continued to provide me with tools and the knowledge to grow my private teletherapy practice. I recently participated in the TeleMental Health Preparedness Summit 2020 and was definitely not disappointed. The excitement and enthusiasm from the participants and TeleHealth Certification Institute staff is contagious. I've been inspired, since, to look into taking more courses, and joined their FaceBook group. I will likely join their consultation group in the near future. I don't believe there is another training institute out there that is as good as this one for everything telebehavioral health. Thank you Ray! You are a visionary!
