May 28, 2014 – Dr. Ken Fung, MD

Francesca Franchina, MS Ed talks with Marika Zimmerman and Dr. Ken Fung, MD of Toronto, Canada about his long professional medical and psycho-therapy experience, the recent publication of his book and extensive research regarding Spiritual Depression and The Hidden Factors of Clinical Depression . Dr. Fung, Past President of The International Association of Christian Therapists (ACT) www.ACTheals.org cites non- consideration of the patient first as a spiritual being in treating depression vs. the most common medical physical-psychological treatment utilizing drugs, anti-depressants and long term psychotherapy. Rejection, abandonment, combinations of physical, mental, intellectual/sexual abuse, loss of love, grief, being broken hearted, early loss of spiritual identity/not knowing they are always loved by God are among the numerous causes of debilitating trauma. Trauma can cause depression and other medical conditions, reports Dr. Ken who delineates trauma sources and causes of depression looking and considering the whole person, utilizing research and experience in treating the medical, physical/psychological condition and recognizing and treating the spiritual dimension of each patient to bring them to wholeness.
