The unconscious transfer to others (including psychotherapists) of feelings and attitudes which were originally associated with important figures (parents, siblings, etc.) in one's early life.
A generic term for the treatment of mental illness or emotional disturbances primarily by verbal or nonverbal communication.
A form of psychiatric treatment, based on Freudian principles, which seeks to eliminate or diminish the undesirable effects of unconscious conflicts by making the patient aware of their existence, origin, and inappropriate expression in current emotions and behavior.
Any form of psychotherapy designed to produce therapeutic change within a minimal amount of time, generally not more than 20 sessions.
A form of therapy in which two or more patients participate under the guidance of one or more psychotherapists for the purpose of treating emotional disturbances, social maladjustments, and psychotic states.
Method of psychotherapeutic treatment based on assumption of patients' personal responsibility for their own behavior. The therapist actively guides patients to accurate self-perception for fulfillment of needs of self-worth and respect for others. (From APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 8th ed.)
Experiential, attitudinal, emotional, or behavioral phenomena occurring during the course of treatment. They apply to the patient or therapist (i.e., nurse, doctor, etc.) individually or to their interaction. (American Psychological Association: Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)
The separation or resolution of the psyche into its constituent elements. The term has two separate meanings: 1. a procedure devised by Sigmund Freud, for investigating mental processes by means of free association, dream interpretation and interpretation of resistance and transference manifestations; and 2. a theory of psychology developed by Freud from his clinical experience with hysterical patients. (From Campbell, Psychiatric Dictionary, 1996).
A direct form of psychotherapy based on the interpretation of situations (cognitive structure of experiences) that determine how an individual feels and behaves. It is based on the premise that cognition, the process of acquiring knowledge and forming beliefs, is a primary determinant of mood and behavior. The therapy uses behavioral and verbal techniques to identify and correct negative thinking that is at the root of the aberrant behavior.
Utilization of Freudian theories to explain various psychologic aspects of art, literature, biographical material, etc.
Primarily a technique of group psychotherapy which involves a structured, directed, and dramatized acting out of the patient's personal and emotional problems.
A method for extinguishing anxiety by a saturation exposure to the feared stimulus situation or its substitute.
Mood-stimulating drugs used primarily in the treatment of affective disorders and related conditions. Several MONOAMINE OXIDASE INHIBITORS are useful as antidepressants apparently as a long-term consequence of their modulation of catecholamine levels. The tricyclic compounds useful as antidepressive agents (ANTIDEPRESSIVE AGENTS, TRICYCLIC) also appear to act through brain catecholamine systems. A third group (ANTIDEPRESSIVE AGENTS, SECOND-GENERATION) is a diverse group of drugs including some that act specifically on serotonergic systems.
Forms of PSYCHOTHERAPY falling within or deriving from the psychoanalytic tradition, that view individuals as reacting to unconscious forces (e.g., motivation, drive), that focus on processes of change and development, and that place a premium on self understanding and making meaning of what is unconscious.
Marked depression appearing in the involution period and characterized by hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, and agitation.
An affective disorder manifested by either a dysphoric mood or loss of interest or pleasure in usual activities. The mood disturbance is prominent and relatively persistent.

The broken mirror. A self psychological treatment perspective for relationship violence. (1/474)

Clinicians face formidable challenges in working with male perpetrators of domestic violence. Many treatment programs use a confrontational approach that emphasizes male entitlement and patriarchal societal attitudes, without honoring the genuine psychological pain of the abusive male. Although some men with strong psychopathic tendencies are almost impossible to treat, the majority of spouse-abusing males respond best to an empathic, client-centered, self psychological approach that also includes education about sociocultural issues and specific skill building. Understanding the deprivations in mirroring selfobject functions from which these men typically suffer facilitates clinical treatment response. While insisting that men take full responsibility for their abusive behavior, treatment approaches can still be most effective by addressing inherent psychological issues. Group leaders who can offer respect for perpetrators' history, their experience of powerlessness, and their emotional injuries in primary relationships are more likely to make an impact.  (+info)

Group psychological treatment for chest pain with normal coronary arteries. (2/474)

We used a psychological treatment package (education, relaxation, breathing training, graded exposure to activity and exercise, and challenging automatic thoughts about heart disease) to treat 60 patients who had continuing chest pain despite cardiological reassurance following haemodynamically normal angiography. The treatment was delivered in six sessions over eight weeks to groups of up to six patients. The patients kept daily records of chest pain episode frequency and nitrate use. Questionnaires were used to assess anxiety, depression and disability. Exercise tolerance was tested by treadmill electrocardiography, with capnographic assessment of hyperventilation. The results were compared with waiting-list controls. Treatment significantly reduced chest pain episodes (p < 0.01) from median 6.5 to 2.5 per week. There were significant improvements in anxiety and depression scores (p < 0.05), disability rating (p < 0.0001) and exercise tolerance (p < 0.05), and these were maintained at six month follow-up. Treatment reduced the prevalence of hyperventilation from 54% to 34% (p < 0.01) but not the prevalence of ECG-positive exercise tests. Patients continuing to attribute their pain to heart disease had poorer outcomes. Group psychological treatment for non-cardiac chest pain is feasible, reduces pain, psychological morbidity and disability, and improves exercise tolerance.  (+info)

The effect of psychological interventions on anxiety and depression in cancer patients: results of two meta-analyses. (3/474)

The findings of two meta-analyses of trials of psychological interventions in patients with cancer are presented: the first using anxiety and the second depression, as a main outcome measure. The majority of the trials were preventative, selecting subjects on the basis of a cancer diagnosis rather than on psychological criteria. For anxiety, 25 trials were identified and six were excluded because of missing data. The remaining 19 trials (including five unpublished) had a combined effect size of 0.42 standard deviations in favour of treatment against no-treatment controls (95% confidence interval (CI) 0.08-0.74, total sample size 1023). A most robust estimate is 0.36 which is based on a subset of trials which were randomized, scored well on a rating of study quality, had a sample size > 40 and in which the effect of trials with very large effects were cancelled out. For depression, 30 trials were identified, but ten were excluded because of missing data. The remaining 20 trials (including six unpublished) had a combined effect size of 0.36 standard deviations in favour of treatment against no-treatment controls (95% CI 0.06-0.66, sample size 1101). This estimate was robust for publication bias, but not study quality, and was inflated by three trials with very large effects. A more robust estimate of mean effect is the clinically weak to negligible value of 0.19. Group therapy is at least as effective as individual. Only four trials targeted interventions at those identified as at risk of, or suffering significant psychological distress, these were associated with clinically powerful effects (trend) relative to unscreened subjects. The findings suggest that preventative psychological interventions in cancer patients may have a moderate clinical effect upon anxiety but not depression. There are indications that interventions targeted at those at risk of or suffering significant psychological distress have strong clinical effects. Evidence on the effectiveness of such targeted interventions and of the feasibility and effects of group therapy in a European context is required.  (+info)

Reduction in seizure frequency following a short-term group intervention for adults with epilepsy. (4/474)

A preliminary investigation of the efficacy of a group intervention combining a range of psychological approaches and techniques for seizure management in adults with poorly controlled epilepsy. An uncontrolled AB group design was employed. Seven adults with intractable seizures took part in 8, weekly group sessions which included providing information, employed cognitive-behavioural techniques and addressed emotional difficulties. Weekly seizure logs were kept by participants during the intervention and the following 3 months. Five questionnaires were administered before and after the intervention and at 2-months follow-up to provide an indication of psychosocial well-being. Seizure frequency and scores on the questionnaires were used as outcome measures. There was a significant reduction in seizure frequency in the group, which persisted at follow-up. There were no significant changes on any of the questionnaires. The results suggest that a group-based intervention incorporating a range of psychological techniques may be effective for improving seizure control. The link between seizure reduction and psychological and psychosocial well-being needs further investigation.  (+info)

Aftermath of war experience: impact of anxiety and aggressive feelings on the group and the therapist. (5/474)

AIM: Analysis of some anxious and aggressive features stemming from the highly traumatic war experiences and having as a consequence chronic posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). METHOD: Group psychotherapy was applied as a therapeutic approach of choice. RESULTS: During the psychotherapeutic process, the possibility to name and express anxiety and aggressiveness was uncovered not only as the sequels of highly traumatic war experiences but even the transgenerational transmission of frustrations and aggressive feelings. These features have constantly very strong influence on the therapist's countertransference. Some of the most prominent characteristics of these processes are described through clinical vignettes. CONCLUSION: Longer group psychotherapy is required for patients suffering from serious PTSD to develop the possibility to externalize their deep traumas and to work them through in order to reestablish connections with everyday life. During that process, the countertransferential issues disclose the most important traumatic features and encapsulations, and indicate the main topics to be addressed in patients and the therapist as well.  (+info)

Countertransference problems in the treatment of a mixed group of war veterans and female partners of war veterans. (6/474)

AIM: Analysis of countertransference problems in the treatment of a heterogeneous group of war veterans. METHOD: The method used in this work was psychodynamic clinical observation and analysis of countertransference phenomena in group therapy. RESULTS: In the beginning of our work, we faced with a regressive group, which was behaving as it was re-born. The leading subject in the group was aggression and the need for hospitalization to protect them and their environment from their violence. With the development of group processes, a feeling of helplessness and lack of perspective appeared, together with suicidal ideas, which, because of the development of group cohesion and trust, could be openly discussed. With time, the group became a transitional object for its members, an object that gave them a feeling of safety but also a feeling of dependence. CONCLUSION: The role of the therapist is to support group members in becoming independent. The therapist's function is in controlling, containing, and analyzing of the destructive, regressive part and in encouraging the healthy parts of the patient. With the integration of good therapeutic process, the healthy parts of the patient gain control over his or her regressive parts.  (+info)

Psychiatric care for patients with breast cancer. (7/474)

Psychiatric management of patients with breast cancer, as well as women's emotional reactions to all phases of breast cancer, were reviewed. These patients face two major losses; one is the physical loss of part of the body and a threat to life, and the other is the loss of femininity. The patients are also likely to suffer from various psychiatric problems including anxiety and depression. Oncologists should be alert to each patient's emotional reactions and potential psychiatric problems, and if necessary, should refer them to a psychiatrist. A combination of psychotherapeutic, behavioural, and pharmacologic techniques is available for the care of patients with breast cancer. Psychotherapeutic modalities include individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, and self-help treatment. The author divided individual therapy into general and specific treatment. General treatment deals with a crisis-intervention and cognitive-behavioral approach, whereas specific treatment deals with issues relevant to patients with breast cancer. Some of the therapeutic processes were illustrated in a case report. These guidelines will contribute to the relief and prevention of emotional suffering stemming from an encounter with the most common form of cancer in women. Also, proper and effective care for patients with breast cancer requires combined use of a variety of therapeutic modalities as well as a multi-disciplinary approach including psychiatric care.  (+info)

Effects of cognitive treatment in psychiatric rehabilitation. (8/474)

Ninety subjects with severe and disabling psychiatric conditions, predominantly schizophrenia, participated in a controlled-outcome trial of the cognitive component of Integrated Psychological Therapy (IPT), a group-therapy modality intended to reestablish basic neurocognitive functions. The cognitive therapy was delivered to subjects in the experimental condition during intensive 6-month treatment periods. Control subjects received supportive group therapy. Before, during, and after the intensive treatment period, all subjects received an enriched regimen of comprehensive psychiatric rehabilitation, including social and living skills training, optimal pharmacotherapy, occupational therapy, and milieu-based behavioral treatment. IPT subjects showed incrementally greater gains compared with controls on the primary outcome measure, the Assessment of Interpersonal Problem-Solving Skills, suggesting that procedures that target cognitive impairments of schizophrenia spectrum disorders can enhance patients' response to standard psychiatric rehabilitation, at least in the short term, in the domain of social competence. There was equivocal evidence for greater improvement in the experimental condition on the Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale disorganization factor and strong evidence for greater improvement on a laboratory measure of attentional processing. There was significant improvement in both conditions on measures of attention, memory, and executive functioning, providing support for the hypothesis that therapeutic procedures that target impaired cognition enhance response to conventional psychiatric rehabilitation modalities over a 6-month timeframe.  (+info)

Psychotherapy is a type of treatment used primarily to treat mental health disorders and other emotional or behavioral issues. It involves a therapeutic relationship between a trained psychotherapist and a patient, where they work together to understand the patient's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, identify patterns that may be causing distress, and develop strategies to manage symptoms and improve overall well-being.

There are many different approaches to psychotherapy, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, interpersonal therapy, and others. The specific approach used will depend on the individual patient's needs and preferences, as well as the training and expertise of the therapist.

Psychotherapy can be conducted in individual, group, or family sessions, and may be provided in a variety of settings, such as hospitals, clinics, private practices, or online platforms. The goal of psychotherapy is to help patients understand themselves better, develop coping skills, improve their relationships, and enhance their overall quality of life.

Psychoanalytic therapy, also known as psychoanalysis, is a type of in-depth talk therapy that aims to bring unconscious motivations and internal conflicts into conscious awareness. It was developed by Sigmund Freud and is based on the theory that people's behavior and feelings are strongly affected by unconscious motives.

The therapy involves regular, often frequent, sessions with a psychoanalyst. The patient is encouraged to talk freely about whatever comes to mind, including dreams, fantasies, and free associations. The analyst listens carefully and interprets the underlying meanings and patterns in the patient's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

The goal of psychoanalytic therapy is to help the patient understand and resolve their internal conflicts, which are often rooted in early childhood experiences. This can lead to improved mental health, better relationships, and increased self-awareness. It's important to note that this type of therapy requires a significant time commitment and can be emotionally challenging.

Brief psychotherapy is a focused, goal-oriented form of psychotherapy that typically takes place over a short period of time, ranging from a few sessions to several months. It is an evidence-based treatment approach that is designed to address specific psychological issues or symptoms and help individuals make meaningful changes in their lives. The focus is on helping the person identify and modify self-defeating patterns of thought and behavior that contribute to their problems.

Brief psychotherapy can take many forms, but it often involves a collaborative approach between the therapist and the individual, with an emphasis on active participation and self-reflection. The therapist helps the individual set specific goals for treatment and provides guidance, support, and feedback as they work towards achieving those goals.

The techniques used in brief psychotherapy may include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, interpersonal therapy, or other evidence-based approaches. The goal is to help the individual develop new skills and strategies for managing their problems, improve their relationships, and enhance their overall well-being.

Overall, brief psychotherapy is a practical and effective treatment option for individuals who are seeking relief from specific psychological issues or symptoms and are willing to commit to a focused and time-limited course of therapy.

Group psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy in which a trained therapist treats a small group of individuals together as a group. The therapy focuses on interpersonal relationships and social interactions among the members of the group. The group becomes a social microcosm for each individual, allowing them to understand and work through their issues in relation to others.

The size of the group typically ranges from 5-12 members, and meetings can be held in various settings such as hospitals, community mental health centers, or private practice offices. The duration of the therapy can vary, ranging from brief, time-limited groups that meet for several weeks to longer-term groups that meet for several months or even years.

Group psychotherapy can be used to treat a wide range of psychological issues, including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, trauma, and relational difficulties. The therapist facilitates the group process by creating a safe and supportive environment where members can share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences with one another. Through this process, members can gain insights into their own behavior, develop new social skills, and improve their relationships with others.

Reality Therapy is not a medical term per se, but rather a therapeutic approach in counseling and psychology. It was developed by William Glasser in the 1960s. Here's a psychological definition:

Reality Therapy is a client-centered approach that focuses on helping individuals understand and take responsibility for their choices and actions. The therapy aims to help clients meet their basic needs in more effective and constructive ways by making better choices. It emphasizes the present and future, not the past. The therapist, using a firm but supportive manner, helps the client to evaluate their behavior and its consequences, and then choose different, more productive behaviors.

Psychotherapeutic processes refer to the methods and techniques used in psychotherapy to help individuals understand and overcome their emotional, cognitive, or behavioral issues. These processes involve various elements such as:

1. Establishing a therapeutic relationship: Building trust and rapport between the therapist and the client is crucial for successful therapy. This relationship provides a safe and supportive environment where the client can explore their thoughts and feelings.

2. Assessment and diagnosis: The psychotherapist evaluates the client's mental health status, identifies any underlying issues or disorders, and develops an individualized treatment plan based on this information.

3. Psychological interventions: These are specific techniques used to address the client's concerns, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, or humanistic therapy. Each approach has its own unique focus, goals, and methods for helping clients change negative patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving.

4. Collaborative goal setting: Both the therapist and client work together to establish clear, realistic goals for treatment that align with the client's needs and values.

5. Self-exploration and self-understanding: Through various therapeutic techniques, clients gain insights into their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, allowing them to better understand themselves and their motivations.

6. Emotional regulation and coping skills development: Clients learn strategies to manage their emotions more effectively and cope with stressors in healthier ways.

7. Problem-solving and decision-making: Therapists help clients develop critical thinking skills and problem-solving abilities, enabling them to make better choices and navigate challenges in their lives.

8. Personal growth and change: As clients progress through therapy, they may experience positive changes in their self-concept, relationships, and overall well-being.

9. Termination and relapse prevention: At the end of treatment, therapists and clients review progress made, discuss any remaining concerns, and develop a plan to maintain gains and prevent future relapses.

Psychoanalysis is a theory of personality and a therapeutic method that aims to treat psychological disorders by understanding and bringing to consciousness unconscious wishes and motivations. It was developed by Austrian psychiatrist Sigmund Freud in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. According to psychoanalytic theory, the human mind is divided into three parts: the id (primitive instincts), ego (rational thought), and superego (moral standards). Psychoanalysis involves exploring the unconscious mind through techniques such as free association (encouraging patients to say whatever comes to mind) and dream analysis. The goal of psychoanalysis is to help individuals understand and resolve their inner conflicts, leading to improved mental health and well-being.

Cognitive Therapy (CT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps patients understand the thoughts and feelings that influence behaviors. It is a form of talk therapy where the therapist and the patient work together to identify and change negative or distorted thinking patterns and beliefs, with the goal of improving emotional response and behavior.

Cognitive Therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all interconnected, and that negative or inaccurate thoughts can contribute to problems like anxiety and depression. By identifying and challenging these thoughts, patients can learn to think more realistically and positively, which can lead to improvements in their mood and behavior.

In cognitive therapy sessions, the therapist will help the patient identify negative thought patterns and replace them with healthier, more accurate ways of thinking. The therapist may also assign homework or exercises for the patient to practice between sessions, such as keeping a thought record or challenging negative thoughts.

Cognitive Therapy has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is often used in combination with other forms of treatment, such as medication, and can be delivered individually or in group settings.

Psychoanalytic interpretation is a fundamental concept in psychoanalysis, a therapeutic approach developed by Sigmund Freud. It refers to the process by which a psychoanalyst attempts to make sense of a patient's unconscious thoughts, feelings, and experiences, as expressed through their behaviors, dreams, symptoms, or free associations.

The goal of psychoanalytic interpretation is to uncover hidden meanings, patterns, and dynamics that underlie the patient's psychological distress or difficulties in living. This involves identifying symbolic meanings, exploring transference and countertransference issues, and examining defense mechanisms and unconscious conflicts.

Psychoanalytic interpretation is a collaborative process between the analyst and the patient, with the former offering tentative hypotheses that are open to revision or refutation based on the patient's responses. The ultimate aim is to help the patient gain insight into their inner world, develop a stronger sense of self, and achieve greater emotional freedom and flexibility.

Psychodrama is not typically defined in the context of medical terminology, but it is a recognized form of psychotherapy that uses role-playing and dramatic techniques to examine and gain insight into a person's emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. According to the American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama (ASGPP), psychodrama is defined as "an action method, often conducted in group settings, which allows participants to enact real-life situations, past experiences, or future plans in order to gain insight, increase self-awareness, and practice new behaviors."

In a psychodrama session, the therapist (known as the psychodramatist) guides the protagonist (the individual who presents an issue or situation for exploration) through a series of scenes that recreate or represent their real-life experiences. The protagonist may assume different roles in these scenes and interact with other group members who take on auxiliary roles to help bring the scene to life.

The goal of psychodrama is to enable participants to explore their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in a safe and supportive environment, allowing them to gain new perspectives, develop empathy for others, and practice healthier ways of interacting with their world. Psychodrama can be helpful for individuals dealing with various psychological issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, and relational difficulties.

I am not able to find a medical definition for "implosive therapy" as it is not a widely recognized or established term in the field of medicine or psychotherapy. It may be a term specific to certain alternative or unconventional approaches, and I would recommend conducting further research to find more information from reliable sources.

However, in the context of psychotherapy, "implosive therapy" is a technique that was developed by psychiatrist Arnold A. Lazarus as a part of his multimodal therapy approach. It involves the use of imaginal exposure to feared stimuli or situations in order to reduce anxiety and avoidance behaviors. The therapist asks the client to vividly imagine a hierarchy of anxiety-provoking scenarios, starting with less distressing ones and gradually moving towards more anxiety-provoking ones. This process is repeated until the anxiety response to the imagined scenarios decreases or disappears.

It's important to note that implosive therapy should be administered by a qualified mental health professional who has received proper training in this technique, as it can potentially lead to increased distress if not conducted appropriately.

Antidepressive agents are a class of medications used to treat various forms of depression and anxiety disorders. They act on neurotransmitters, the chemical messengers in the brain, to restore the balance that has been disrupted by mental illness. The most commonly prescribed types of antidepressants include selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). These medications can help alleviate symptoms such as low mood, loss of interest in activities, changes in appetite and sleep patterns, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and thoughts of death or suicide. It is important to note that antidepressants may take several weeks to reach their full effectiveness and may cause side effects, so it is essential to work closely with a healthcare provider to find the right medication and dosage.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a type of in-depth talk therapy that aims to help individuals gain insight into their unconscious processes and patterns of behavior. It is based on the theories of psychoanalysis developed by Sigmund Freud and subsequent psychoanalytic thinkers. The therapy focuses on exploring the full range of a patient's emotions, including those the patient may not be fully aware of or willing to acknowledge.

The goal of psychodynamic psychotherapy is to uncover unconscious patterns and dynamics that contribute to the patient's distress. This is achieved by analyzing the patient's thoughts, feelings, and experiences, as well as their relationships with others. The therapist helps the patient explore their past experiences, particularly those from early childhood, to understand how they have shaped their present behavior and emotional responses.

Through this process, patients can develop a better understanding of themselves, their motivations, and their conflicts. This increased self-awareness can help them make positive changes in their lives and improve their relationships with others. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is often used to treat a wide range of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, and relational difficulties.

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), also simply referred to as depression, is a serious mental health condition characterized by the presence of one or more major depressive episodes. A major depressive episode is a period of at least two weeks during which an individual experiences a severely depressed mood and/or loss of interest or pleasure in nearly all activities, accompanied by at least four additional symptoms such as significant changes in appetite or weight, sleep disturbances, psychomotor agitation or retardation, fatigue or loss of energy, feelings of worthlessness or excessive guilt, difficulty thinking, concentrating, or making decisions, and recurrent thoughts of death or suicide.

MDD can significantly impair an individual's ability to function in daily life, and it is associated with increased risks of suicide, substance abuse, and other mental health disorders. The exact cause of MDD is not fully understood, but it is believed to result from a complex interplay of genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors. Treatment typically involves a combination of psychotherapy (such as cognitive-behavioral therapy) and medication (such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or tricyclic antidepressants).

A depressive disorder is a mental health condition characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loss of interest or pleasure in activities. It can also include changes in sleep, appetite, energy levels, concentration, and self-esteem, as well as thoughts of death or suicide. Depressive disorders can vary in severity and duration, with some people experiencing mild and occasional symptoms, while others may have severe and chronic symptoms that interfere with their ability to function in daily life.

There are several types of depressive disorders, including major depressive disorder (MDD), persistent depressive disorder (PDD), and postpartum depression. MDD is characterized by symptoms that interfere significantly with a person's ability to function and last for at least two weeks, while PDD involves chronic low-grade depression that lasts for two years or more. Postpartum depression occurs in women after childbirth and can range from mild to severe.

Depressive disorders are thought to be caused by a combination of genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors. Treatment typically involves a combination of medication, psychotherapy (talk therapy), and lifestyle changes.
