Depression dilemmas

Depression dilemmas

Hosted by Black Dog Institute

Despite improved awareness and education, there are still some presentations of depression that are highly challenging for clinicians to manage in the primary care setting . Depression Dilemmas is a new interactive workshop that tackles areas of treating mood disorders that clinicians can find particularly demanding. Using case studies as the platform for learning, the program explores strategies to tackle depression in the context of alcohol use disorder, late-life depression and depression that is failing to remit despite seemingly adequate treatment. Open to both general practitioners and psychologists, this advanced workshop also provides an opportunity for the two professions to interact, share each other’s perspective and problem solve together.

Topics Covered:
1. Depression & Alcohol
2. Late life depression
3. Difficult to treat depression

Suitable for:
GPs, GP Registrars, Psychologists, Counsellors, Social Workers and Mental Health Professionals
