It’s difficult to know what makes one person more predisposed to depression than another. Each of us is biologically different and we respond emotionally and physically to life events differently. Although life circumstances may trigger depression it is our thought patterns and our interpretation of events that seem to determine our emotional experiences in most cases. Difficulties at home, worries about academics, conflicts with friends, disappointments in relationships, illness, divorce, and the loss of a loved one or love relationships may trigger depressive episodes. Underlying thought patterns that relate to a child’s belief that they have little control in their environment, as well as negative beliefs about themselves are important factors that need to be addressed and challenged.
