Depression in adolescence



Everything is prepared in childhood but everything is played out in adolescence.

(E. Kestemberg)



Adolescence requires everything to be re-defined. “The ego is assaulted from all sides, from inside and out, and loses the certainty of innocence linked to childhood and to repression.” (J.Laplanche 1986)

The changes that occur in puberty force adolescents to “undo” and to “remake” him/herself, but also to acknowledge themselves and seek acknowledgement, and in doing so they  become  exposed  to themselves and to the Other. This feared yet long-awaited moment makes it necessary for them to reconsider the separation–individuation process and bring it up to date with their new physical/psychological reality. This turbulence includes still oscillating and  instable  identification  processes;  contrast and conflict rest between one’s own creativity and sinking into compliance and self-denial. Deep feelings of sadness and their bodily equivalents often accompany the process of loss and acquisition, and one cannot always differentiate between a transient physiological depressive element and a genuinely pathological form of depression.
