|HOPE is a key feeling in managing sadness|
and /or depression.
Did you know that women are twice as likely to suffer from – and show signs of feeling depressed than men of the same age?
If true that we have all experienced times in our lives when we are sad, at what point do we realize that our sadness is depression?
Recognizing the differences and learning to identify when professional intervention is needed is wise and the first step to our health.
The Howell Foundation invited Dr. Christina Zampitella for its next Evening Series Seminar presentation: Depression vs. Sadness: Learning to Know the Differences. She will be talking about pragmatic, integrative ways to take care of ourselves, to go from feeling depressed to feel better and increase hope. The skills presented by Dr. Zampitella will help us determine if we are sad or depressed, and whether we are improving or not.
At the end of the presentation, attendees will:
- Be able to distinguish sadness from depression
- Identify when professional help is needed
- Learn pragmatic, integrative skills to improve hope while decreasing sadness or depression
- Determine when sadness or depression is improving
Dr. Zampitella is a licensed clinical psychologist at Integrative Psychological and Assessment Services in San Diego, CA. She holds a Fellow of Thanatology (expert in death, loss, and grief), is a professional speaker, and an adjunct professor at National University and Marian University.
