5) In this chapter we lay out our general dialectical constructivist model of functioning and apply it more specifically to depression. A DIALECTICAL CONSTRUCTIVIST MODEL: INTEGRATING BIOLOGY AND CULTURE As well as having emotions, people also live in a constant process of making sense of those emotions. We have proposed a dialectical constructivist view of human functioning to explain this process (Greenberg & PascualLeone, 1995, 2001; Greenberg, Rice, & Elliott, 1993; Guidano, 1991, 1995a, 1995b; Mahoney, 1991;Neimeyer&Mahoney, 1995;}.

Being ostracized and humiliated in childhood, especially repeatedly, evokes shame, and this shame stimulates fears of survival. Loss, fear of abandonment, lack of love, or experiences of defeat similarly arouse fears of survival of the self as one knows it. Any event that threatens coherence of the self-identity and attachment security can cause these experiences to be stored as signifying danger. A sense of threat, coupled with a sense of humiliation, powerlessness, and defeat, can result in depression.

Pascual-Leone, 1990, 1991). For simplicity, we will refer to the complex synthesis process, in which a number of coactivated emotion schemes coapply to produce a unified sense of self in relation to the world, as the emotion schematic process. The experiential state of the self at any one moment will be referred to as the self-organisation. In depression, the self is organized experientially as unlovable or worthless and helpless or incompetent because of the activation of emotion schematic memories of crucial losses, humiliation, or failure in prior experience.
