ABSTRACT
The article discusses developments in the maintenance treatment of recurrent depression. The author offers strategies for the treatment of depression. They include the early recognition of the disorder, coupled with early initiation of treatment of the acute episode; the continuation treatment aimed at reducing the likelihood of relapse, the return of symptoms before the episode has run its course and prophylaxis, aimed at preventing new episodes of illness. The author also discusses the possible need to pathogenesis of the disorder and the need for longitudinal models.
