CPD Workshop: Working with chronically depressed patients

Many practitioners find chronically depressed patients difficult and dispiriting to work with. The sense of being hopelessly stuck is strongly communicated, both in the narrative and in bodily self-expression, by way of posture, stance, facial expression and tone of voice. In this situation, the practitioner may find himself or herself similarly despairing.

By looking at different perspectives on depression in the context of clinical examples, we will explore the elements of that characterise chronic depression and seek to understand not only what is being experienced by the patient but also what is being communicated in the transference and countertransference.

Participants are invited to bring examples from their own practice for discussion in the group.
