Despite general agreement that psychosocial factors play an
important role in various facets of the etiology, onset, treatment
response and outcome of depressive disorders, the replicability of
research results has left much to be desired. Because much of this
unreliability has been attributed to variability in diagnostic
criteria, this volume focuses on efforts to identify sources of
variability in the definition and diagnosis of depressive disorders
within Western society and cross-culturally. It also explicates the
elusive role of aversive life events in the development and course
of depressive disorders, deals with the interpersonal experiences
and dispositions related to the vulnerability and maintenance of
depression, and addresses an often neglected issue: how stress and
social support affect the quality and response to treatment
received. The text concludes with the presentation of an
integrative framework for vulnerability to recurrent depressions
which emphasizes the interaction of biological and psychosocial
factors as largely mediated by personality and temperament.
