Psychiatrists will treat character deficiency instead of depression



The Futurist Magazine :
Psychiatrists will treat character deficiency and acute lack of self-directedness instead of depression. Mental-health doctors have plied patients with psychotropic drugs for decades to little effect, says Robert Cloninger of Washington University in St. Louis. Some people may just be genetically predisposed toward greater happiness. Where clinical treatment can make a difference, he says, is in enhancing patients’ character development and self-directedness to achieve better overall life satisfaction.
