Experiences of Depression
Theoretical, Clinical, and Research PerspectivesBook - 2004
From the publisher's description: "This landmark book paints a compelling picture, demonstrating the value of considering the psychological dimensions of depression. In a profound contribution to understanding the nature of depression, Dr. Blatt identified two types of depression that, despite a common set of symptoms, have distinct roots. One, which he terms anaclitic depression, arises from feelings of loneliness and abandonment. The other, which he terms introjective depression, is born of feelings of failure and worthlessness. Recognizing these fundamentally different depressive experiences has spurred a remarkably wide range of research, the development of assessment tools, and impressive strides in understanding the nature, etiology, and treatment of this far-reaching disorder."
