Amy Pham Period 4 16 April 2009 Depression: Group Therapy Misery loves company, but company helps dispel misery. Depression is a psychological disorder that affects thousands of people in the US as well as all over the world. Psychologists have developed many different forms of therapy to combat this disorder and lift the fog of depression from its sufferers. One of the most effective of these is group therapy, a form of cognitive-behavior therapy that emphasizes the healing powers of associating with and receiving reassurance from others who face similar problems. Depression is a psychological disorder characterized by a depressed mood, feelings of worthlessness, and diminished interest or pleasure in most activities . This is marked by a decrease in the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and serotonin in the brain, which leads to less arousal and a low mood. Depression can be triggered by tragic events, such as the death of a loved one or the loss of a job. Even after therapy, recovery may be only temporary and a person may soon relapse into depression. There is lots of research on depression, as it is one of the most prevailing psychological ailments in the country. Yet among all the different types of therapies available, group therapy is one of the best.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
