How to Talk about Depression and Therapy in Spanish

by Ann Abbott

Lissette Piedra, my colleague in the School of Social Work, sent me a manual that describes a therapy model for depression--in Spanish.

Obviously, Spanish community service learning students are not capable of doing therapy. But depression shows up anywhere and everywhere, so it is good to have the vocabulary to be able to talk about it. School children can be depressed. Adults might come into the Refugee Center to talk about something else but exhibit signs of depression.

There are some typos in the manual, but the information and the vocabulary are a good resource.
