Despite being on the increase, depression is actually one of the easiest disorders to treat successfully and quickly – once you know how.
The best training on depression I've ever had.Mental Health Worker
Why take this course
This popular online course with psychologist Joe Griffin, a leading expert in the field, shatters the many myths that still surround this distressing condition and how it should be treated. It gives you the new insights, information and research findings that have been quietly revolutionising the effective treatment of depression for well over a decade.
Literally thousands of people in the UK and Ireland have already been helped to recover from depression – often remarkably quickly – as a result of the new information taught on this course.
Among other things, you will discover: what really causes depression; why depressed people wake up tired and unmotivated; the link between worrying, dreaming and depression; why some forms of psychotherapy can actually be harmful when treating depression; why the appropriate type of psychotherapy has a dramatically lower rate of relapse than antidepressants and is also the most effective treatment – even with severe cases and postnatal depression.
For the sake of the millions of people affected by depression around the world (including rising numbers of children, young people and the elderly), this information needs to be much more widely known.

‘How to break the cycle of depression’ is based on our one-day seminar of the same name. This online course is split into 4 modules, each of which are broken down further into different sections containing filmed lectures given in English by the tutor, Joe Griffin.
Each film clip is followed by a short series of multiple choice questions. These are designed to help you think about and absorb the course content and to check that you have understood the main points of that section before proceeding to the next.
There are also course notes for you to download, plus additional reading information and helpful links.
You can take as long as you like to work your way through the course and can view it as many times as you like.
