About the Course:
The relationship between depression and smoking is a significant concern among behavioral health professionals. Smokers often have a cigarette when they feel down to help them feel better. This reliance on cigarettes to modulate mood can keep smokers from even trying to quit. And if they do quit, feelings of depression can get them to start smoking again. This webinar will address key strategies to help smokers with depression to quit.
This course is based on the recorded webinar, How to Talk With Patients About Smoking Cessation and Depression created by Robert M. Anthenelli, MD in 2016.
