The Spiritual Side of Depression
In these 3 sessions, 90 minutes each, Dr. Bengtson teaches those who struggle with or have a loved one who struggles with depression or a prolonged case of the blues learn how to identify the early warning signs of depression and how to help someone battling depression. During this time you will learn:
- How to spotlight your true enemy and empower you to confidently counter his assaults of despair, fear, and shame to find freedom.
- An antidote to the poisonous shame and self-defeat in your life.
- Your inherent worth and why you’ve been a hostage to depression, but it is not your final destination.
- That you get to decide how much power depression will continue to have over your life and when it will stop.
- The lies that keep you chained in depression’s darkness and will hand you the keys of freedom in the light of truth.
