[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.
