CASE ILLUSTRATION pdf free download. This chapter presents the history and psychotherapy of a mildly depressed young adult as a way of concretely illustrating the concepts discussed in chapters 7 and 13 on the psychodynamics and treatment of this form of affective disorder. This young man’s depression can be categorized as characterological with acute exacerbations. However, at no time was his symptomatology so severe that his powers of reasoning and reality testing were threatened. Also, despite his repeated protestations of despair, medication did not appear indicated; medication might have been
detrimental, since the reliance on drugs could have worked against the necessary realization that relief had to result from personality change in the long run.
