Abstract

Recent advances in the psychosocial understanding of depression have elaborated an already complex aetiological model. Yet each new strand seems to echo, and forge links with, themes uncovered earlier, making it easier to see what is common about the 'final common pathway' to onset. For example, although recent stressors have for some time been recognised predictors of onset, new insights about the origins of these stressors have overlapped withother new work on depression and childhood adversity to identify a group who 'produce' their own severe life events in response to early negative experience. And recent studies have traced the well-known gender difference indepressive prevalence to differences both in gender role involvement with the provoking life events and in styles of support-seeking/support-giving. What emerges is the powerlessness, loss and humiliation characterising the final pathway. Both naturalistic studies and controlled trials suggest thatpsychosocial situations reflecting the opposite emotional meaning, that isnew hope, characterise a similar pathway to remission. Conclusions speculate whether awareness of this pathway might enhance purely pharmacological treatment.
