The existential viewpoint brings scope, depth of field, and clarity to the appreciation of the human situation.  It informs our understanding and treatment of psychopathology in general; depressions in particular. Among the strengths of the existentialist stance are: a concern for individuals and their view of their particular circumstances; the realization that the individual is on a life long quest in which transcendence over local circumstances is natural; and acceptance of dread and despair as emotions which attend, motivate and inform actions that determine direction.
