There are times when a patient may internalize painful judgments and stereotypes from the world, and they might not even realize they’ve done it.
And when that patient is struggling with depression, addressing this toxic messaging can be a critical step in healing.
In the video below, Shelly Harrell, PhD, will get into why it’s important to take a patient’s experiences of discrimination into account when we’re working with depression.
She’ll also share her approach for helping patients identify and examine any painful stereotypes they may have internalized.
This is one of several videos we’ve shared recently as we continue to talk about antiracism in clinical practice.
