Setting Goals in Depression: Podcast 027

Setting Goals in Depression: Podcast 027

00:00 / 7.33

This podcast is the narrated version of my article Build Your Client A Roadmap Out Of Depression (4 Quick Psychotherapy Techniques).

A depressed client may (quite naturally) want to tell you all about their depression, but to really begin working with them you’ll need to discover where they actually want to go in positive terms. This isn’t always easy because the depressive mindset inhibits solution focused thinking about the future, but with a little work you can get there.

In this episode I talk about:

  • Why depression is a strange city
  • How to astablish clear goals
  • How to break down all or nothing thinking
  • Why grading the depression is important and how to do it
  • Why to check the roadmap for avoiding depression in future
