Abstract

The psychosocial aspects of depression are considered with respect to psychological factors (i.e., thinking personality, coping style) and social factors (i.e., family, relationships, employment, life events). Etiologic/mechanistic controversies are only acknowledged, and the purpose of this review is to underscore the wide variety of psychosocial complications that can occur during a depressive episode. The potential roles of psychotherapy in the treatment of mood disorders are considered. Results regarding the efficacy of behavioral therapy, cognitive therapy, and interpersonal psychotherapy in the treatment of unipolar, nonpsychotic, adult depressed outpatients are summarized.
