Dr. Hodges, a nationally known speaker and author, will be speaking about his book, Good Mood Bad Mood. As a medical doctor and a Biblical counselor Dr. Hodges has a unique perspective to the topics of depression and bipolar disorder. He will also touch on the topic of PTSD.
Depression and bipolar disorder are two of the most common diagnoses made in medicine today. Good Mood, Bad Mood; examines whether we are in an epidemic or if we have simply misdiagnosed common sadness as depression. Current research in the medical community seems to indicate that the criteria we use to diagnose depression has resulted in an increased and incorrect labeling of common sadness as depression. While medical treatment is now the commonly accepted way to deal with pain and sadness, its promise has not been fulfilled. In Good Mood, Bad Mood, Dr. Charles Hodges offers an explanation to help the reader see the importance of sadness and the hope that God gives us in His Word.
If someone you know suffers from depression, please consider attending this conference. It will be a helpful time as you seek to help others. This conference is sponsored by the Albuquerque Biblical Counseling Training Center and our goal is to promote Biblical counseling in helping the hurting. The Bible has much to say about the topic of depression and sadness and we believe you will walk away with tools to help those who suffer from depression. Dr. Hodges insights are thought provoking and clarifying and we believe you will be blessed as you spend time listening to his concerns and his concepts.
