HEALTH BY MYRON B. PITTS Depression can be 'contagious 7 For National Depression Month, new research measures the effect on families I N TREATING DEPRESSED patients, psychologist Laura Rosen, director of family therapy at Columbia University's hospital, noticed something interesting: Family members often seemed to end up suffering from the same symptoms. Rosen's experience led her to study depression and families for eight years and to co-author, with clinical psychologist Xavier Amador, the new book When Someone You Love Is Depressed (THE FREE PRESS, $22). She discovered depression is guilty of blueing not just the lives of its sufferers — about 18 million Americans a year — but also the lives of their loved ones. The focus on treating depression comes at a time when a new study sponsored by the World Bank and World Health Organization concludes that by 2020 severe depression will be the globe's No. 2 health problem, behind heart disease. "Depression can be contagious," Rosen says. Among her findings: likely to be depressed if you live with a depressed person, a new book warns People living with someone who is depressed are four times likelier to be depressed themselves; spouses of the depressed are more vulnerable to emotional problems; and couples therapy can be more effective in preventing a relapse of depression than individual therapy. Rosen and Amador's book is the first of several new volumes on depression: • Breaking the Patterns of Depression (DOUBLEDAY, $22.95), by Michael D. Yapko, is due in December. Yapko argues that depression is a cycle that must be treated in terms of patterns and not individual episodes. • / Don't Want to Talk About It (ScuiuNER, $24), by Terrence Real, discusses the "hidden," usually undiagnosed, depression of men. Due in January. • The Cruelty of Depression (ADUISON- WESLEV. $20), by Jacques Hassoun, focuses on the relevance of childhood to depression. Due early next year, ca A SELF-QUIZ: IS YOUR PARTNER DEPRESSING YOU? October is National Depression Month.
