> Well, it's probably something that's on a continuum. For some people, and you're probably one, Scott, depression is 100% biological. For others, it may be 100% psychological. For most people, they're probably somewhere on the continuum between biological and psychological. Doctors and T's are likely to decide where on the continuum someone falls based primarily on their own theoretical leanings. The other part of course, is that it's not merely X causes Y, Y also causes X. Long term depression, even if 100% biological in origin, will, in many cases, change someones's view of the world. And bad experiences such as abuse have been shown to cause physical changes in the brain. Cecilia

That is one of the most cogent, concise, and accurate depictions of the phenomenology of affective disorders I have yet seen! Kudos.
