When Depression is really about shame...
I came across this article today which really resonated with me both professionally and personally. In it, Hilary Jacobs Hendel talks about working with clients who present with what seems to be untreatable depression, and then finds that issues of shame are at the core. This is something that I also find frequently when working with clients who have depression (and in my experience, i'd add quite a few clients with anxiety as well), and I have had to shift how I work with them in order to address that shame-wound (i just made that term up -- hope that's ok!)
At any rate, I invite you to take a look at the article and see what comes up for you. Thanks!
