I use cognitive behavioral approaches to depression which have been demonstrated by research. Cognitive therapy techniques involve learning to identify automatic throughts which produce or reinforce depression so as to learn how to alter these thoughts before they become overwhelmning. Behavioral approaches involve mobiizing oneself and developing constuctive and affirmative behaivoal patterns as opposed to such behaivors as withdrawal and apathy which contribnute to depression. With my approach, I select interventiosn which make sense to the patient so the patient feels confience that they can succeed.
