Just as it is essential to learn and practice skills for maintaining your physical fitness, there are "antidepressant" skills that foster effective coping with social and emotional stressors. The aim is to enhance your coping abilities so that you're less likely to be overwhelmed by stressful situations. This workshop will review the psychological skills shown in research studies to enhance coping. When you develop these skills, you will be more psychologically fit and better able to prevent or at least manage depressed mood.
