A new Therapeutic approach to Depression: enhancing the Clinical conceptualisation

Oana Cobeanu

Depression is one of the most prevalent mental disorders and the third largest contributor to global disease burden, outranking heart disease; it is the number one contributor to disease burden in developed countries, costing an estimated $81 billion in the U.S. alone and €118 billion in Europe, where it is the most costly mental disorder. Evidence-based treatments for depression are available and extensively used. There is evidence that cognitive-behavioural approaches (CBT) are among the best empirically supported, both in terms of theory and intervention. However, recent research in evolutionary psychology has shown a possible new therapeutic approach to depression.
