Why is it important?

The patient’s symptoms of depression went from a level of severe to normal, and the posttest results persisted after a 3-month follow-up. The severe depression seems to have been mitigated through interventions that promoted contact with reality, self-determination, the psychoemotional establishment of systemic places, and through finding meaning in autobiographical events.


This article may encourage further studies that use the PPDMQ to create a metasynthesis and to gauge whether the effectiveness of FC, as a systemic, intergenerational, and integrative psychotherapy, could plausibly contribute to enrich the body of scientific evidence–based psychotherapies and mitigate the global escalation of depression.
