Each stage requires a redefinition of self
Four turning points experienced by the clinically depressed...
1. A period of inchoate feelings during which they lack the vocabulary to define their experience as
depression
x Aware of unexplainable differences between how they feel and how others feel
x }v[ooÇ}Pv]Ì]vPv}uoµZÇZÀv}(]v]tion of normalcy
x Longest phase for most
2. The period during which they conclude that something is wrong with ME
x They move from having vague inchoate feelings to having a clearer sense of something
being wrong
x This period involves a search for a remedy
x This period involves the issue of whether or not to go public and tell other people they
have a problem
o Going public is central to the development of an illness identity
o And it must happen in order to seek a remedy
3. Crises stage: A period during which they are thrust into a world of therapeutic experts, most are
hospitalized and put on meds
x Involves hospitalization for most
x Hospitalization can be positive or negative
