Authors

“I am grateful for what I have learned from reading this book. Each author demonstrates that depressive experiences are field phenomena, contextually emergent and contextually supported, and affecting our environment. They are not isolated events, they are of a field. They emerge from contexts that support depressive experiences. The impoverished conditions ‘speak’ through the person who presents with depression.
The perspective this book offers gave me a more nuanced appreciation of the many experiences with depression that my patients and I have lived through. The foundational, even existential significance is clearer to me now. Our perseverance and emotional courage have been cast in a more profound light, which inspires my current work.
The combination of clinical insight and theoretical inspiration is breathtaking.”
From the Preface by Lynne Jacobs
