Under the guidance of Peggy Papp, renowned author and clinician, the Depression Project at the Ackerman Institute for the Family has pioneered a marital therapy approach that addresses the cultural gender "mandates" that predispose men and women to depression and undermine intimate relationships. In this emotionally compelling video, Papp demonstrates her team-based approach to treating depression within a marital therapy context. An immensely useful and skillfully presented resource, the program also draws upon the clinical expertise of Depression Project members and producer Steve Lerner, practicing family therapist and founding director of Menninger Video Productions
