“DEPRESSION & OTHER MOOD DISORDERS: Working with the Family & the Relationship”: One-Day Workshop with ALDO GURGONE Sat 3 November 2018 (9.30am – 4.30pm)
ALDO GURGONE is a Clinical Psychologist & Director of the William Street Family Therapy Centre (Mount Lawley, Western Australia). He has worked in Australia, the UK, Italy, South East Asia and South America, and has conducted Supervision and Training Courses in Family & Relationship Therapy for over 40 years.
Often, when an individual develops a mood disorder, s/he seeks assistance from the family doctor, and then gets referred for treatment. Although the individual experiences the symptoms of the mood disorder, nevertheless, others close to the individual are also affected by the symptoms, and they can also affect the symptoms that the individual experiences.
Generally, treatment is provided for the individual with the symptoms. However, is this the best way of treating mood disorders? Are mood disorders simply a bio-chemical imbalance which simply require a chemical readjustment? Or are there also interpersonal factors involved both in the onset of the mood disorder, as well as in the process of the mood disorder?
This workshop will explore these and other issues, as well as how to work with couples and families to harness the family resources in helping to deal with the mood disorder.
