I'm sure that CBT and case-specific medical treatment is the route to go to help people suffering from depression AND other ailments as well.
I'm not just saying that. I was involved in a severe motorbike accident in my matric-year (1986) that left me in a coma for 7-months. F.y.i. any coma that lasts longer than an hour is classified as “serious”. Since then, I’ve achieved my matric (albeit over 4 years), University qualifications (x4), released a motivational CD “5%” (because that’s the chance I was given to survive the first night I spent in ICU) and I have been delivering inspirational speeches since 2004 because I know that anybody can do anything “…if they can give it some meaning” - Dr^56 Viktor Frankl. I’m sure that Madiba also falls into this category. I’m also sure that if ‘new victims ‘knew more’ of other living people who’ve done amazing things … they might be inspired to their own amazing thing in their own life. Then we’d live in a world worth living in!

Even if I say so myself: not bad for a guy who nearly died in 1986!
As far as I know, there isn’t another person – worldwide – who had a severe accident in their final year at secondary school … who went on to achieve 4 tertiary qualifications!
Take a look at www.vfisa.co.za (Viktor Frankl Institute – SA) for more information about the course. If you go to that page, look under Logotherapists.

I hasten to mention that anybody who is anybody, knows they're not as special as Nonhle. If you don't who she is and why she is notorious - you need to spend more time on Twitter taking cogniscance of what South Africans - you know people with brown, yellow, pink and tattooed skins read on the screens of their smartphones.
That said though - I think it could have ended with her mouth full. Posted on 10 Dec 2012 17:42
Thanks Zibusiso. I love your reference to food companies’ recipe books. Another example is 4x4 marketers offering off-road driving courses. Content marketing is the new buzz word, but it is a tried and trusted form of marketing.
But for many, a stumbling block may be the need to engage rather than sell. To go back to your example of Copyblogger: their blog gives advice on writing blogs. But they sell software, not writing services. Since it is content marketing software there is a clear strategy, but it’s not hard sell.
There is huge potential for companies that make good use of content marketing, but we need to get over the outdated view that blogs are just random ramblings and recognise their role in an integrated marketing plan. Posted on 10 Dec 2012 16:20
