About the Seminar: This seminar explored the introjective defensive style of the depressive personality from a broadly psychodynamic perspective, and discussed constructive ways of approaching the depressive personality in therapy. The recording contains valuable examples and practical suggestions on how to recognize, live with, and treat people with depressive personalities. The depressive is emotionally sensitive, self-critical, fearful of rejection, and often carries around an inordinate amount of inappropriate guilt and unmourned losses.  Healthy depressives often make up for their own perceived failures by trying to heal others and doing good deeds; more disturbed depressives may descend into self-hatred, mood disorder, and even psychotic features.
