Dr. Jemail's approach to depression begins with a through assessment of its history-family roots, biological predispositions, patterns, medical and endocronological needs, experience of attachment, loss, and response to stress or change. Depression has medical, psychological, social and spiritual dimensions. To address depression sometimes therapy has to explore how changes of life style impact the patient and their quality of life. There are degrees of depression and it is important to determine where this fits in the developmental life of the depressed person. Recent research suggests that approaching depression from a medical model is not enough, a multidimensional approach is best.
