Description

Your clients with depression, bipolar, and other mood disorders are counting on you. But successful treatment can feel like an impossible task.

Diagnosis is tricky, first-line treatments often fail, poor treatment compliance and destructive impulsivity feel like the norm, and recurrence seems the rule and not the exception. And you frequently need to work around medication use that comes with serious side effects, but often fails to offer real benefits. The litany of challenges can leave you feeling exhausted, ineffective, and troubled about the potentially devastating outcomes of treatment failure.

This training is exactly what you need to help your clients achieve a fuller recovery from depression and bipolar disorder, all without resorting to potentially risky and ineffective medication use.

Watch depression and mood disorder expert and author Chris Aiken, MD, and get cutting-edge therapeutic techniques, skills, and practical guidance so you can assess for and effectively treat mood disorders better than ever before.  Attend and discover:

  • New assessment tools for your practice – demystify the DSM-5™ for mood disorders
  • The latest psychotherapy techniques including Rumination-Focused CBT, Social Rhythm Therapy and CBT for Insomnia
  • Nutritional psychiatry and the first clinically proven diet to treat depression

Best of all, upon completion of this live training, you’ll be eligible to become a Certified Depression & Mood Disorders Treatment Professional (CDMDTP) through Evergreen Certifications.
Certification lets colleagues, employers, and clients know that you’ve invested the extra time and effort necessary to understand the complexities of treating depression and other mood disorders in clients. Professional standards apply. Visit www.evergreencertifications.com/CDMDTP for details.

Comments

Pamela R - Wilmette, Illinois

"Dr. Aiken was an excellent, interesting, engaging presenter, even for remote participants. He shared lots of most recent research, managed time well, and material was geared toward experienced practitioners rather than reviewing basic information. I REALLY appreciated not coming away from the workshop thinking, "He didn't say anything I didn't already know." I truly learned a great deal. I wish he had spend just a bit of time going over medications, w/a goal of familiarity vs expertise."

Keri C - Urbandale, Iowa

"I did this via Live Webinar. It does make question flow less satisfactory as a participant but guessing it is just the nature of a webinar; this is my first one. Responses to questions were addressed faster the 2nd day and, I wanted to convey appreciation and usefulness of his responses but didn't want to comment much as it appeared disruptive. I wanted to clarify on one question but thought it would be too challenging/disruptive via a web participant. Best training I have ever attended!"
