Logotherapy: Coping with depression and other anxiety disorders
By Dr. Manoochehr Khatami (In Persian)
About this Talk:
Most people feel anxious or depressed at times. Losing a loved one, getting fired from a job, going through a divorce, and other difficult situations can lead a person to feel sad, lonely, scared, nervous, or anxious. These feelings are normal reactions to life's stressors.
But some people experience these feelings daily or nearly daily for no apparent reason, making it difficult to carry on with normal, everyday functioning. These people may have an anxiety disorder, depression, or both.
In this talk we will address cognitive and medication therapy to manage depression and anxiety.
