Title: Dealing With Depression Through Self-Actualization
Depression (MDD) is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. Given a broader understanding about this mental health condition, a person going through Depression experiences hopelessness, loneliness, lack of motivation to lead a normal life and sometimes it can even trigger suicidal tendencies. The general cures prescribed by Mental Health Professionals are anti-depressants including but not limited to SSRI, SNRI, and other prescriptions. While these help the patient to get a dose of serotonin, it also induces some of the side effects such as: hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, low sodium, nausea, rashes, dry mouth, constipation or diarrhea, weight loss/gain, sweating, tremors, sedation, sexual dysfunction, insomnia, dizziness, and much more. Considering the lifelong and severe side effects of anti-depressants, I have been able to bring forward a carefully conceptualized method of Therapy which includes the Person Centered approach by Carl Rogers in combination with the Guided Heartfulness Meditation which has been able to bring the clients out of Depression. Their condition was confirmed by their Psychiatrists, as reported to me by the clients.

Title: A Psychosocial Approach For Effective Self-regulation
Self-regulation is considered a foundational mechanism for addressing events and challenges in everyday life. Self-regulation allows us to move forward from adversity and maintain calm when under pressure. It is a much-needed skill set for achieving balance in one’s life roles. Individuals with poor self-regulation typically struggle with managing their day-to-day activities, which includes their ability to efficiently perform their work and successfully balance expectations.
Occupational therapy through the utilization of a psychosocial approach has shown to be an effective method; particularly for individuals with emotional challenges, such as ADHD, GAD, and LD. Occupational therapy interventions incorporate the use of sensory integration strategies for best outcomes.

Title: Breathing: A Useful Tool That Reduce Stress
Breathing is an essential element for our survival and bodily activities. In this presentation we are looking at the benefits of deep breathing. Respiration can be voluntary and involuntary and is controlled by cranial ( CN IX and CN X) and spinal (C3,4 and 5) nerves. Literature indicates a clear understanding of the adaptations and modifications that occur when subjects are exercising regularly. This adaptation of exercise has a potential for efficient gas exchange during physical activities as well as for the development of capillary networks in muscles and lungs. Deep Breathing is a relaxation technique where the focus is on deep inhalation hold for a few seconds before exhalation. It is uncommonly used by few psychologists for patients suffering from psychological disorders such as anxiety and depression. Stress Management Therapies has been used for centuries in China and India under different forms of practice such as Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Yoga and meditation. So Deep breathing occurs when an individual is conscious of breathing and allows the time to partially control the gas exchange in the body. The implication of intercostal and diaphragm muscles, via phrenic nerve (C3, C4 and C5), are responsible of lungs expansion and increases the volume in the lungs, therefore reduce the pressure, and create an air movement from the outside toward the inside of the lungs. Stretch receptor allows vagal afferent pathway to moderate lung inflation also known as Hering-Breuer reflex. The pontine Respiratory group, also named Pneumotaxic center has an inhibitory effect on the Dorsal Respiratory Group (DRG), specific to inhalation . On the other hand, the apneustic center promotes inhalation and therefore activates DRG . Scientists suggest that Ventral Respiratory group (VRG) is mainly specific to the rhythm of respiratory rate and has neural communication with DRG that also involves the glossopharyngeal nerve, the cranial nerve IX. Heart baroreflex are sensitive to blood pressure and O2 concentration, has an influence in sympathetic and parasympathetic response via afferent vagal pathway therefore afferent aortic and carotid baroreflex are importantly implicated in breathing. Also, literature reveal a close link with aortic baroreflex and sympathetic response .
