Ter Psicol [online]. 2009, vol.27, n.1, pp. 41-49. ISSN 0718-4808. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48082009000100004.
This work is the proposal of the basis of a model of strategic group intervention in depression originated from the clinical experience of the authors and the systematization of a study carried out at the base Hospital in Linares between March and May of 2005. The Model attempts to show a different way of considering depression from a constructivist approach where the work with the patient's resources is a priority and the use of strategic interventions to break depressiveness patterns. The first part aims to the theoretical principles of strategic group therapy; the second part focus on the therapy developed, analysis and reflection of the outcomes and the last part shows the proposed Model, premises about the base and differences with the traditional model of intervention in depression.
