Research data shows that episodes of depression are beginning at earlier and earlier ages, and that childhood depression, once virtually unknown – or at least unrecognised – is emerging as an all too common feature of modern life.
The alarming discovery that even mild forms of depression in a child can augur more severe episodes in later life demands an appropriate response, consisting of both treatment, and preventative measures.
With this information in mind, this course will enable students to gain an understanding of both the treatment and prevention of depression.
