JUNE 24 - 26, 2021 / WORLDWIDE
In the context of the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, quarantine was shown to be associated with increased psychological distress and, among others, depression. In this context, loneliness was found to be the strongest predictor of depression. Psychotherapeutic treatment was impeded by either reorganization as e-health solutions or wearing face masks.
Chronic courses of depression in general are relatively common and difficult to treat. Without doubt, treatment has additionally been hampered by the above-mentioned consequences of the pandemic.
Associations between early maladaptive schemas and severity as well as chronicity of depression were found. Besides high rates of comorbid personality disorders, interpersonal problems are prominent variables that hamper treatment, affirming schema therapy as powerful approach to effective treatment.
Chronically depressed are generally deeply fused with ego-syntonic dysfunctional critic mode beliefs and stuck in detached, avoiding or passive-aggressive coping modes that block the therapist off. Besides, compliant surrender and undisciplined child modes hamper treatment.
