The author sustains that in a post-rationalist approach it is the emotional loss in accessing the parents to determine the patient’s depressive experience with an avoidant attachment pattern. In the avoiding patient, it has not been possible to establish the emotional support of parents, thus determining in the child an affective style characterized by a marked tendency to exclude any form of emotional involvement in relationships. An empathic and non-judgmental approach can help to integrate and modulate the way in which the patient experiences their problems and their emotions.
