When your spouse, partner, or adult child is depressed, how can you talk with them about your concerns, frustrations, and fears? Caregivers often worry about saying the wrong thing to their loved one, especially when depression is involved. Fortunately, there are ways to have effective, respectful, and productive conversations, even when your loved one is in a depressive episode.

In this webinar, Dr. Chris Segrin shares how caregivers can communicate effectively with a loved one about their depression, manage conflict, maintain their own boundaries, and offer hope to a person living with depression.

Have you ever asked a teen how they are doing, only to be met with a one-word reply? What does it mean when they say, “Fine”? Talking with teens can be hard. Depression makes it harder. As a parent or caring adult, you want to make sure you are connecting with the teen in your life and aware of their needs, but that’s tricky to do if conversations don’t feel welcome. While it may feel impossible, there are ways you can build trust with your teen and have impactful conversations.

In this webinar, therapist Rebekah Gibbons, LICSW, discusses how parents and caring adults can build trusting relationships that help teens feel safe, communicate about depression using age-appropriate terminology, and manage difficult conversations.
