Solutions for Modern Living
to the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), a major
depression is marked by a combination of symptoms that
occur together, and last for at least two weeks without significant improvement.
Symptoms from at least five of the following categories must be present for a major depression, although even a few of the symptom clusters are indicators of a depression, but perhaps not a major depression.
symptoms that are not necessarily DSM specific criteria include, but are not
limited to: work problems such as absenteeism, decreased production, lack of
concern about work and accidents at work.
Causes of Depression
such as serotonin, noradrenaline and dopamine usually return to normal levels,
when there is an interaction with psychotherapy for depression. There is no
further need to take any medication to correct the imbalance. This suggests that
the imbalance is the body’s physical response to psychological depression,
rather than the other way around.
Sociology. There is a more important and established understanding that in a social setting, the product of family environment, plays more relevance in producing depression. Learnt responses from a depressed mother, father or other family member can provide that child with negativity at a later time. It is now a faster, more complex life, with higher demands placed on the individual, most jobs are not as secure as they were, there is more information technology, hours spent watching TV or on the Internet can produce poor socialisation.
Treatment plans have to be drawn up on an individual basis following an initial consultation during which Gaynor assess the nature of the depression, the underlying cause(s) and develops a treatment protocol which will provide safe, effective, solutions to the clients' problems.
