Sadness vs depression

    Is depression being over-diagnosed? Are we denying ourselves the normal experience of sadness? Marty discusses these questions with JEROME WAKEFIELD, Professor of Social Work and of Conceptual Foundations of Psychiatry at the New York University School of Medicine. He is co-author with Allan Horowitz of “The Loss of Sadness: How Psychiatry Transformed Normal Sorrow into Depressive Disorder.”
