Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to explore the adolescent's lived experience of being depressed through the research methodology of phenomenology. The sample consisted of 3 participants; two 13 year old females and one 14 year old male. Interviews were audiotaped and analyzed using an adaptation of Colaizzi's seven-step procedure. Results included Theme Categories of Dispirited Weariness; Emotional Homelessness: Sense of Aloneness; Emotional Homelessness: No Safety Where Expected; Constant, Unrelenting Anger; Working Through Parental Break-up; Caught in the Middle; Spectrum of Escape From Pain; Treatment Variations; Depression is an Up and Down Course; Perspectives on Friendship; Gaining A Sense of Getting Well; and, Assessing Progress So Far. The essential structure of the lived experience of depression in adolescents was formulated from all data.
