Transcript

Behavioral activation can be very helpful in treating depression as well. Behavioral activation means that a person, even though he or she does not have the energy, even though he or she does not have the desire to go ahead and engage in certain tasks, they will be encouraged by a therapist or by a family member to go through the motions to continue doing their routine, to continue doing things that they enjoy, even though they're hating every second of it. And there is data that supports that as being an effective weapon in the treatment of depression.
