>>There's a fair amount of research done on how traumas, for example, end up changing brain chemistry (see, for example, the work of Bruce Perry and colleagues).<<

Just to show how differently we think -- when I read "trauma" (above), I thought of physical brain trauma. I've been asked about that in recent years (I had a couple of concussions prior to the onset of my dep. many years ago).

The problem with all of the psychosocial theories of depression: Most negative experiences (abuse, bad parenting, acute or long term stress, etc... don't result in depression, or any other psych disorder. It's like saying that most child abusers were abused when they were children --- without saying that most abused children don't become abusers.
