Managing Depression

Sarah Reiff-Hekking's picture

Depression is a “long-lasting melancholia” according to Freud, it's a “loss of the capacity to love, a lowering of the self-regarding feelings”; it does not go away after a few days, and it is not caused by lack of will or by weakness.

The disorders it causes can be treated successfully; it is then up to us to maintain a balance in our private lives and at work.

The ideas expressed in this Knowledge Pill are partly based on experiences, and on relocation or coaching interviews.

The content is dedicated to the person and to his own capacity for action, for creation having an impact on depressive affects. Some of these subjects may be used immediately.

The clinical practice linked to depression can be described in detail by a health-care professional.
