When talking about depression, I prefer to use positive/active words as opposed to combative or oppressive words. I'm looking for a word that fits in this sentence that is active and positive:
I can use this technique (to?) ________ depression
I thought about something like disempower, but to me it feels more oppressive, like taking power away. I'm looking for a word that reduces the implied power in the first place, like dimming a light vs shading it. Possibly like you see in films, where the imaginary influence becomes smaller and less significant, vs binding it.
