Abstract

This is the second in a two-part series on psychotherapy for depression. Considering depression as a spectrum phenomenon, the author goes beyond manual-based diagnosis to suggest criteria for the use of psychodynamic, cognitive, or interpersonal psychotherapy, with or without pharmacotherapy. He proposes a clinical model that is both integrative and selective and recommends shifting and sharing different therapeutic perspectives in tailoring treatment to the depressed individual.
