Winter Blues? Hofstra Prof. Explains Seasonal Affective Disorder

Seasonal Affective Disorder

Dr. William Sanderson, professor in the Department of Psychology, explains the difference between feeling sick of snow and being clinically depressed as a result of the cold, slushy, stormy weather we’ve experienced this season. This condition, known as Seasonal Affective Disorder, makes it difficult to function or carry on normal activity. Dr. Sanderson suggests that – despite the miserable weather – it’s important to keep your routine as normal as possible not cancel opportunities to spend time with family and friends or do errands just because of the cold.

Dr. Sanderson, a clinical psychologist with expertise in cognitive behavior therapy, conducts research on the nature and treatment of anxiety disorders and depression.
