This is Part 1 of a 4-part talk: Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4

Depression is a common human experience, but one that is especially resistant to change. This workshop will review ways to partner with depressed people as they go through the change process. It will consider critical biblical themes, current views on depression, and the use of psychiatric medications.

In the first of a four-part talk, Ed Welch introduces his own interest in depression that stems from walking with many people through their struggle, including his father who wrestled with depression for many years. Welch discusses five causes of suffering in Scripture and answers the questions, “What does Jesus Christ have to do with clinical depression and suffering?” and “How does Scripture give hope?” Welch shows us how to make the cries of the Psalms personal to our own suffering.
