Summary Presents original research drawing theoretical guidance from developmental psychopathology, social psychology, personality psychology, and descriptive psychopathology as well as from clinical research and practice on various aspects of marital and family processes in depression. Among the themes explored are the recurrent nature of depression, bi-directional effects between family processes and depressive symptoms, and the effect of violent partners. Also explored are individual, couple, and cultural differences among depressed patients and the need to tailor couples therapy to better fit these differences. The conclusions imply fundamental shifts in the way we frame questions about families and pathology, conduct research, and attempt to intervene therapeutically in the lives of depressed patients.
