Owen Renik

Depressive affect is a response to an actual or imagined unpleasurable event which the subject thinks has occurred or will occur. Depressive affect is contrasted with anxiety, a response to the expectation that an unpleasurable event might occur. Depressive affect is adaptive as a signal to stop actions directed at unobtainable aims. In order to achieve this signal function, it is necessary for depressive affect to be mastered and tolerable.
