Offsite Event: Dr. Jonas Horwitz discusses challenging the beast of depression at the Durham County Library, North Regional Branch
Sunday 4/14, 2:30-3:30 pm
Severe depression is an awful experience that can make a person feel helpless. The "beast" of depression wants you to say to yourself, “There is nothing I can do to make myself feel better.” It is relentlessly pessimistic and wants you to believe that your misery will never end. These are the lies your depression wants you to believe.
Dr. Horwitz shows people how to challenge their own beast of depression. He teaches specific things they can do to change their own behavior which then changes their brain chemistry. The more they make these changes, the better they will begin to feel.
This program will be of interest to those who have experienced depression in their own lives or witnessed it in the lives of friends and loved ones, as well as to therapists who strive to help their clients "challenge the beast."
Dr. Jonas Horwitz is a licensed psychologist in Durham, NC. He is the author of How to Stop Feeling So Damn Depressed: The No BS Guide For Men.
