Q & A – What is the Abandonment Depression?

Abandonment depression, also known as separation anxiety or abandonment anxiety, is a psychological condition that can occur when an individual experiences feelings of loss or rejection when a significant relationship ends or is perceived as being threatened. This can be in the form of romantic relationships, friendships, or even with a therapist or caretaker.

People who experience abandonment depression may have difficulty trusting others, forming new relationships, and may experience intense feelings of sadness, anxiety, anger, or shame. They may also have physical symptoms such as difficulty sleeping or eating.

Abandonment depression can be a result of past experiences of loss or neglect, or it may be related to attachment styles developed during childhood. Treatment may involve therapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy or psychodynamic therapy, to help individuals process their emotions, develop coping mechanisms, and learn how to form healthy relationships.
