Treating Depression Strategically – Two day workshop with Dr. Michael Yapko (Jan 19-20, 2013)

Dr. Michael D. Yapko

After stellar reviews from his last visit, Dr. Michael Yapko is returning to Calgary Counselling Centre. A two day workshop titled “Treating Depression Strategically” kicks off the series of workshops that will be available throughout the year. The workshop emphasizes the importance of utilizing proactive and well-targeted interventions when treating depression. The way clinicians think about the nature of depression and answer fundamental questions –such as what causes depression – naturally determines what treatment approach they are most likely to take.

Dr. Michael Yapko is an internationally recognized clinical psychologist who is known for his work in depression and outcome-focused psychotherapy. To date, he has been invited to present his innovative ideas and strategic methods to colleagues in over 30 countries. This two day training program will discuss why depression isn’t fated by brain chemistry, how depression affects marriages and families, the important of experiential learning, and much more.

The workshop will talk place at the University of Calgary Downtown Campus. The workshop is $325 for early bird registrants, $395 for those who register after Dec 1, 2012 and $175 for students (with proof of id). We encourage all staff and students to take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn from one of the world’s best!
