Psychotherapeutical Intervention in Depressive State of Detainee Women

Introduction: Concerning the thematic of our intervention it can be said that there is a bigger susceptibility for woman to develop a major depressive episode after a life event that generates stress and which is related to her own life, or to what happens around her, determining a back stroke state. Plus, childhood experiences lived by women, like: “neurotic” features, defective relationship with the mother, maltreatment, may constitute factors that lead to depression. In the same time we can say that women are trice more affected than men by combined depression (major, plus the one of short duration) asking again ourselves: “is the woman very different by man?” In our configuration, the woman being in the detention state develops a certain behavioral state, different by the one that develops the man being in the same state. Even if the statistics show a lower feminine delinquency rate, we can remark though the positive fact that the woman is lees amenable to commit a delinquency act than man.
Materials and methods: In our intervention we used among intervention, conversation, observation, biographical dialogue also scales like: Beck’s scale of auto evaluating the depression – Woodworth test and tree test, all identifying the existence of depressive state.
Results: It was shown that the woman in detention it is more amenable to develop an increased adherence to the elements that release the apparition of depressive state and in consequence to depression itself. Identifying in/at the depressive state does not determine vindicatory the existence of correlation between: deed and detention; detention and depression; detention and therapy, even if there may be established some resemblances of concept and attitudinal-behavioral expression, all reporting to the initial context, but foreshadowing a new personality profile.
Conclusions: It is imposed: to recognize the existence of the phenomenon itself, practicing the psychotherapeutic centered programs, in our case depression, and also implementing some reintegration programs, re-socialization, reeducation and professional re-conversion, having as main character the detainee woman.
