Depression has many causes. Biological, emotional, environmental and physical factors can produce depression. The genetic link cannot be ignored too. Family history plays a major role in many diseases that are passed on line. This is not just family history but also family dynamics. Life comes with a lot of stress. For some people there is a constant struggle to survive from week to week. Even successful and right to the community can be a problem for others.
Depression is often difficult to find in its initial form. It's hard to see the symptoms even if the person loved by this disease. Sadness on occasion is part of life. This is natural. Real depression is far more permanent and serious. It's too late for early detection when the symptoms interfere with life. People with depression feel lonely and fed up with general life. Signs of hope in their lives are lost. Sleep habits and enjoyment of life no longer exists. This is when treatment is very important.
Psychological treatment of depression (psychotherapy) helps individuals depressed in several ways. First, supportive counseling helps alleviate the pain of depression, and discusses a feeling of despair that accompanies depression.
Cognitive therapy changes pessimistic ideas, unrealistic expectations, and self-evaluation that is too critical that creates depression and maintains it. Cognitive therapy helps people who depressed recognize critical life problems, and are small. It also helps him develop a positive life goals, and more positive self-assessment. Third, problem solving therapy changes the life of a person who creates significant stress, and contributes to depression. This may require behavioral therapy to develop better coping skills, or interpersonal therapy, to help solve relationship problems.
