The expectant result is the expectation that women’s coping knowledge and skills will be improved, through a more scientific (researched based) and empirical understanding and consciousness. The writer would like to start the discussion of the current topic:”Psychology of Women: Self-Attribution, Cognitive Distortions and Depression”, with two queries. How can depression be described in a succinct manner?, Is depression a universal and common experience?
To answer the initial question, the writer describes Sharf, who believed the moderate “signs of depression” as including: “sadness, feelings of worthlessness, guilt, social withdrawal, and loss of sleep, hunger, sexual appetite, or interest in actions”. He believed the acute” signs of depression” as demonstrating “slow speech, difficulty in sitting still, inattention to personal appearance, and pervasive feelings of despair, anxiety, in addition to suicidal thoughts and feelings”.
The reply to the second question, the writer describes Evans & Tait who when answering their own question, regarding whether depression was a universal experience, quoted Seligman, who described depression as the’common cold of strange behaviour’. Evans & Tait believed that, Seligman’s description was to draw attention to the fact that most of us experience it occasionally.
So, while depression can be gotten either mildly or severely, depression is unquestionably both common and universal. And it’s an especially a frequent experience among women. Why is mental illness (depression) more prevalent among girls? Rosenfield to describe the”gender difference in mental illness” (depression). According to Rosenfield, girls appear to direct their “negative, aggressive, anxious feelings and struggles” discriminated contrary to their self, while, guys direct them either against another person or against the society. In a nutshell, under the effect of mental illness like depression, women appear to want hurt themselves, while men appear to wish to hurt others.
Why is this so?
The writer would answer this question in a future article entitled: “Psychology of Women: Self-Identity”, since the scope of this guide is limited to the evaluation of “Self-Attribution and Depression”. The writer would accent again, that self-attribution is among the perspectives through which you can understand depression, which can be multifaceted in nature.
Therefore, women shouldn’t feature everything in their lives to self-attribution, neither is melancholy all the time as a result of negative self- attribution. But all unwanted self-attributions, involves some type of cognitive distortions. The writer would like to describe the inter-link involving cognitive distortions, self-attribution and melancholy.
