Managing Depression Effectively: What we think we know may not be true

Webinar Date: 
May 18, 2011
Speaker: Paul Block, PhD
Director, Psychological Center
 
We are fortunate to know a lot about depression and to be able to do any number of things that help depressive episodes remit, i.e., that make patients better in the short term.  However, our short and long term effectiveness is not as good as we would like to believe, largely because of the many things we think we know about depression and its treatment that may not be true.  By focusing on evidence and theory about how care can be inadequate and correcting misimpressions about the literature, we can organize care to be more effective and be more useful to the people we serve.

Participants will be able to:
  • List effects of depression on health, health care effectiveness and costs, and on functioning and quality of life
  • Identify ways that care as often delivered can be inadequate
  • Identify beliefs they have about the literature that might not be as accurate as previously assumed
  • Describe how care should be organized to meet goals for management of depression
