    This book interested me by the title The author starts out making his point vehemently that the drug companies want you to be depressed so they can make lots of money which is partially true But this book then began to become immensely enlightening for me personally Relating to feelings of loss and over self abuse I was very much relating to the melancholic attributes Also the subjects of mourning and dealing with losin

The New Black Mourning Melancholia and Depression

Catch all concept of depression to explore the deeper unconscious ways in which we respond to the experience of loss.. Darian is a psychoanalysist who wants to ring the bell There are to many diagnosis that say depression According to him this is caused by economic interests and a culture that demands uick measurable solutions We all know this critiue sadly Darian does not go into any effort to show any proof of thisWhat he does do is give genealogy of grief and melancholy with lots of examples from the fields of psychiatric anthropology art and psychological theory In this way he hopes to show that a lot of symptoms of depression are likely to be rooted in grief or melancholy This is rather interesting to read He gives descriptions of mechanisms involved with grief or melancholy Like that of identification with the dead that result in people not able to do anything or even dying An example of this are the people who die shortly after their partner What is needed in the case of loss of a close one are the following four steps 1 Introducing a symbolic order this creates distance and your own reality2 Kill the object3 Separation between the image of loved one and the position of that loved one for our life4 Giving up the image that they had of usIn this process there are a lot of things that can go wrong that results in symptoms of depression But the case is that the causes for the symptom are something else that means that the psychologist should look in to this causes To the persons own personal truth Something that does not happen today in psychologyThis is where I mean that Damian Leader goes wrong He does a lot of medicine and Cognitive therapy basing because they are only mend to threat the symptoms I think this image is oversimplified For example cognitive therapy is a method that treats symptoms by looking at behavioural patterns that are not practical for the life of the client and then the client and therapist try to change those patterns So far this can look like only treating the symptoms but I do not believe that this does not involve looking at how these patterns came to be So in the process people learn about there personal truths why there symptoms are there The same goes for medicine Only using medicine suppress the symptoms but treatment always involves talking going into why you need these medicine and in most cases the medicine is just used as a kick start to get moving againThe fact that Darian gives such a one sided view on current treatments makes me suspicious that he deals with some resentment What could have been a balanced investigation into causes coming from grief and melancholy turns into a monologue That coming for a man pleating for a new language and dialogue is a missed chance for me
