Contemporary psychiatry uses a variety of complementary approaches which enrich one another. In this paper, we describe the development of a brief psychodynamic approach for hospitalized patients with major depression, as well as the recent commercialization of an atypical neuroleptic depot medication. In addition, we discuss electro-convulsotherapy which, despite it has been widely and understandably condemned on the basis of its abusive and non medical application in certain political contexts, deserves objective assessment on the basis of scientific data stemming from recent research suggesting it is in some contexts a valuable tool.
