TREVISAN, Júlia. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy and difficult-to-treat depression: towards an integrative model. Rev. psiquiatr. Rio Gd. Sul [online]. 2004, vol.26, n.3, pp.319-328. ISSN 0101-8108.

Depression is associated with a heterogeneous group of situations, some of which may be difficult to treat. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy and its theoretical formulations have been extremely useful in the understanding and treatment of depression. The author suggests that this is particularly true in difficult-to-treat cases, when an integrative perspective may improve clinical response. The article reviews the literature on psychoanalytic psychotherapy in the treatment of depression.

Keywords : Depression; depressive disorder; psychoanalysis; psychoanalytic therapy; psychotherapy.
