In treating depression, clients are instructed in the concept of neuroplasticity and how they can influence neural firing so that life affirming thoughts and emotions are re inforced in the brain by what clients do with their awareness. All clients are instructed in meditation skills or centering prayer to foster neural integration and improvement in well being and mood. Clients are instructed in the relationship between thoughts and emotions and are given skills to practice between sessions to impact their mood in a positive manner.
