The integral approach to therapy proposes to accommodate all the etiological factors of
unipolar depression in its theory, as well as to make use of all existing therapies, both pharmacological
and psychological, in the treatment of unipolar depression. Integral Therapy is
compared to cognitive therapy to find evidence for its superiority over the cognitive
approach. It appears that the cognitive therapy is more cost-effective than Integral Therapy
as an individual approach in the treatment of depression, but that the integral perspective
accounts better for etiological factors.
