Course Description:
This course is based upon a journal article from the Journal of Expert Review of Neurotheraputics that reviews the outcome literature regarding the effects of family based psychoeducational interventions on Major Depressive Disorder.
 
This is a short but well written review with content that will be helpful to clinicians who work with clients diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). According to the article, MDD causes high levels of family burden on the relatives of clients with MDD. In addition, the article states that there is little research available on the efficacy of family psychoeducation interventions on major depression. Despite these limitations, the authors of this article found empirical evidence for the use of psychoeducational interventions for the families of clients with depression.
 
This article is a review of clinical research, and if you do not like reading research reviews, you may not like the course material. However, empirically effective treatments are an important way to improve your clinical practice and the strategies and interventions described in this study are found to be significantly effective.
 
This clinical ce course is useful for psychologists, social workers and professional counselors who work with clients diagnosed with depression and need clinical CEUs. This course is appropriate for intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their clinical skills in the treatment of depression, especially those clinicians who work with families or family systems.
