January Lay Caregivers Workshop

Identifying Depression & Its Symptoms In Your Care Community


Samaritan Counseling Center has addressed the topic of depression a number of times in our Lay Caregiver series.  It is certainly an important and relevant topic in today’s world with concerns about suicide and self-harm, an aging population living longer with more infirmities, the pressures on today’s youth.  These are all causes for depression.   

Staff member Dr. Karen Schurgin, Licensed Psychologist and Art Therapist, will help lay caregivers identify symptoms of depression in their care receivers,  learn when and how to make appropriate referrals, and work towards better understanding of depression in their care communities.

Therapy Services:

If you are facing struggles, it can help to talk to a therapist one-on-one to discuss problems and concerns.  This is frequently the primary method of treatment.  However, there are occasions when another person, important in your life, is included in the treatment.  Samaritan Counseling Center offers individual, couples, and family therapy.

Educational Programs:

If you are engaged, you may be interested in our Preparation for Marriage workshop.  This workshop is designed to provide structure for engaged couples to look at their relationship—to articulate its strengths and pinpoint the areas of potential difficulties. 

For clergy, therapists, and other professionals, we offer Prepare/Enrich Facilitator trainings.  Prepare/Enrich is a couples assessment that helps to identify strengths and growth areas.  It is one of the most widely used programs for assessing couples for premarital counseling and relationship enrichment.

For volunteers and caregivers, such as Stephen Ministers, we offer regularly scheduled Lay Caregiver Workshops that offer continuing education on a variety of topics.
