There are many types of therapy available to treat depression. Three of the more common methods used in depression treatment include cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, and psycho-dynamic therapy. Often, a blended approach is used. Some types of therapy teach you techniques on how to re-frame negative thinking and employ behavioral skills in combating depression. Therapy can also help you work through the root of your depression, helping you understand why you feel a certain way, what your triggers are for depression, and what you can do to stay healthy. Some of the “big picture” themes that therapy can help with is relationships, setting healthy boundaries, and handling life’s problems.
