Tedesco Depression

Depression has been recognized as the leading cause of sick leave. Its incidence in the population is so high that it has also been called as the disease of the century. The clinical manifestations of depression are very diverse. The personality and circumstances of the person can contribute to that support on a few symptoms and not others. The depressed person may be irritable or apathetic, or both, may eat more or less, can show a taciturn countenance or conversely exaggerating their reactions. For this reason it is exemplary to accentuate the resource of psychotherapy as the best way of treatment.

Depression is one of the classic ways of expressing a complex interaction with the other subject. Characteristic of depression today is not the diversity of manifest itself but the increase and distribution of the same, reaching even occur at ages increasingly more early. The other issue that arises with this clinical picture, is that any hint of sadness today runs the risk of being characterized as depression in any of its degrees. The sadness that can coincide in their symptoms with depression, may be at different stages of life and responding to situations that the least that can cause is precisely this feeling. Duels, substantial changes of life, migration, etc, often accompanied by certain symptoms that resemble the depression. Do know then if it’s a depression? The duration will usually be that will give the alarm signal. The fixity of the symptom or the mood usually indicate a malaise that requires a psychotherapy for its resolution.

Why opt for a therapy that uses the story of the patient as the main tool? For many years pharmacological therapy has been privileged to treat this condition. The years have shown its limitation, because far from reducing their incidence, this has been increasing from the hand with the development of our modern societies. Is usually not linking depression with personal history, to how much is assumed that it is a response learned and reinforced throughout life and that it is possible to redirect the vision of the depressed person. We argue that depression is not resolved consciously and voluntarily, that this depressed and not out of depression is not because I do not want to be better, but because it cannot. A space in which you work with that part of the subject that we do not control what we feel even to our regret, with our reactions, our ghosts, our fears and frustrations. Incorporating the discourse of the patient as if material itself, it is an alternative that usually give good results when it passes through a depression.
