The Role of Contemplative Psychotherapy in the Treatment of Depression

Depression is the second most common mental health issue in the United States with 21.0

million (or 8.4%) American adults experiencing a depressive episode in 2020. Additionally, for a variety of reasons, depression can be challenging for clinicians to work with effectively. I

personally believe that depression is too complex and dynamic of an experience to effectively treat with any one modality alone. This podcast explores the role of Contemplative Psychotherapy in the treatment of depression. I am also attempting to define and articulate my personal understanding of depression and my personal orientation to working clinically with depression as a therapist.
