Topics include how to teach children critical thinking and social skills, how to encourage emotional flexibility, and how to foster an anti-depressant core. Also included is information about the specific ways parental depression affects a child's risk for mood and behavioral difficulties and what can be done about it besides, “seek treatment”.
Each class includes a powerpoint presentation, group discussion, handouts, and suggestions for practice at home.
