For the past forty years, Christopher Lukas has produced, written and directed program material for public and commmercial television, cable and the educational/industrial markets. His career, which began in Hollywood, continued in NYC, where he was a producer of over 200 hours of programs for WNET over a nine-year period, as well as Director of Programming for that oulet.
His productions include The World of Abnormal Psychology, 13 one-hour programs for PBS and Whose Death is it Anyway? a PBS program on end-of-life decision-making. He has made a reputation for himself in the field of hospice and palliative care videos.
He is the author of Directing For Film & Video (now in its 12th year); Silent Grief: Living in the Wake of Suicide (in its 16th year), Staying in Charge, a handbook of information on end-of-life care (John Wiley & Sons), and, most recently, The First Year: Prostate Cancer (Marlowe Books).
His contributions to MyDepressionConnection will focus on relating his own life-long depression and that within his family to what he has learned from his work in psychology and from life experiences; how he can help others who may not have seen depression from his particular point of view.
He hopes to gain, in return, dialogue with users of this Web site.
