Depression and Alzheimer's Study - Module 8

DEPRESSION AND DEMENTIA Depression is one of the most debilitating conditions that could beset modern day people. More and more people suffer some type of mood disorder and may find that life is being drained out of them. Chances are good that most counsellors will frequently be called upon to help depressed clients who desperately seek help. Counsellor may often feel inadequate to deal with such daunting tasks as to walk the road back to recovery. In this study unit we hope to offer a better understanding of what depression is about and how a wellness programme may help to nurse such clients back to wellness and happiness the wellness way.

  • Description

    In this study unit we also focus on Alzheimer's as an example of lifestyle related dementia.  The wellness approach has as object the improvement of lifestyle factors related  to dementia as a way to facilitate the healing process. I will lean heavily on the medical work of Dr. Dale Bredesen who devoted much research to the issue of dementia and concluded that a wellness approach would serve us best as treatment protocol. Of course there are many different forms of dementia and it is most likely that the wellness counsellor will come into contact with many clients who are challenged in this way.
