Psychotherapy of depression

Pavan L., Conforti D.


PDF


The most important psychotherapeutic approaches for the treatment of depression and in particular, the psychoanalytic, cognitive and interpersonal approaches are discussed. Peculiar features of each psychotherapeutic theory are stressed and the characteristics of the patient and of his disorder which could constitute an indication to a psychotherapeutic approach rather than another are pointed out. Finally, the importance of the complementary role of pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy is stressed on the basis of the presuppositions of the integrative approach to the treatment of depression.
