This chapter looks at how self-determination comes into play in treating personality disorders and mood disorders. It begins with a discussion of Jean-Etienne Esquirol, who describes and comments on the nine symptoms of a “major depression.” The chapter then shifts to some of the possible treatments and shows that these are clearly compatible and can be enhanced by self-determination principles. Two effective psychotherapies are discussed: interpersonal psychotherapy and the cognitive-behavioral analysis system of psychotherapy.

Keywords:   personality disorders, mood disorders, Jean-Etienne Esquirol, depression, interpersonal psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral analysis, psychotherapy
