September 2018 Collab Salon: Depression: biological, psychological, or a social construct?

Have Post Modern ideas failed effective work in partnering with our clients around the role severe depression plays in people’s lives? It is Amy Gottlieb's contention it has. As someone with 43 years of lived experience with depression coming and going as an unwanted companion, she has been offered many well meaning yet unhelpful ideas from post modern practitioners. In this salon Amy endeavored to generate thought about how holding a rigid post modern stance (in the name of not being rigid) may not serve our clients as they come to us for help to get distance from depression robbing them of joy.
