[Paleopsych] Talk therapy as cure for depression

Depression is hell on earth yet I don't advocate drugs as a continuous 
remedy.  Drugs are nothing more than a quick fix for the moment 
elevating the patient to adequate levels of functioning without 
providing a permanent solution to the problem.... other than taking a 
stronger dose.  Talk therapy has worked in the past and although much 
more time-consuming for the doctor seems a more amenable solution.   
Some patients have actually been "cured" from talk.  The downside is 
that both talk and drugs are habit forming.
