Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 149107745X, Paperback)EXISTENTIAL DEPRESSION ‘How To Cure the Life-Related Sadness’ Essays on existential depression, edited by Marc Sanders, 2013 'Existential depression is a insidious and pervasive condition. It can begin at a very young age. This is the reason why it must be recognized as soon as possible. A duty of parents, teachers and caregivers is to try to bring their attention to its causes and manifestations. Existential depression is a condition and not a real pathology: it affects young and adult individual. |It can cause hyge unhappiness and should be approached with the right method and attitude.' In this book you will find information, ideas and advice on existential depression. Existential depression is usually treated not with any type of prescription medication, but rather with psychotherapy, and art-teraphy, focused on helping the person explore the meaning of their life, body and intellect. Existential depression may be caused by a specific event in the person’s life (e.g., loss of a job or a loved one), or by nothing special at all. Existential depression has not been widely researched yey. It is a new hypothesis. "It has been my experience that gifted and talented persons are more likely to experience a type of depression referred to as existential depression. Although an episode of existential depression may be precipitated in anyone by a major loss or the threat of a loss which highlights the transient nature of life, persons of higher intellectual ability are more prone to experience existential depression spontaneously. Sometimes this existential depression is tied into the positive disintegration experience referred to by Dabrowski (1996). Existential depression is a depression that arises when an individual confronts certain basic issues of existence. Yalom (1980) describes four such issues (or "ultimate concerns")--death, freedom, isolation and meaninglessness. Death is an inevitable occurrence."
