Understanding the Fundamental Differences in Theories of Depression
Psychologists have long understood that human beings are subject to depression or what Sigmund Freud often called “melancholia” (Heller, 2005, p. 71). But in attempting to explain the nature and causes of depression, widespread disagreement and even contention would seem to be commonplace among psychologists. And when it comes to highlighting some of the most interesting disagreements about depression, no two psychologists are more fascinating than Sigmund Freud and Carl Rogers. Along these lines, the following report discusses the fundamental differences with respect to Freud’s and Rogers’ theories of depression.
