Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Depression
CBT refers to the combination of cognitive and behavioral therapies and has strong empirical support for the treating both mood (i.e.: depression) and anxiety disorders. The basic premise of CBT is that negative emotions cannot be changed directly, therefore it targets thoughts and behaviors that are contributing to distressing emotions.
Paternal Post-Partum Depression
Post-partum depression has long been identified as a serious condition after the birth of a child. There has been extensive research on maternal post-partum depression, which has revealed many predictors (Beck, 2001). However, there have not been a lot of studies conducted on what causes fathers’ post-partum depression. From the little data available, it seems that maternal post-partum depression is the strongest predictor of paternal post-partum depression (Paulson & Bazemore, 2010).
If stress is making you feel anxious, angry, or fatigued, yoga could be the solution to these problems.
