Background: Childhood neglect and abuse are recognized as risk factors fordepression, but are not often studied as predictors of treatment response indepression. Methods: Clinically depressed outpatients (n 5 195) were askedabout childhood experiences before beginning a randomized antidepressant trialwith either fluoxetine or nortriptyline. Three treatment outcomes weremeasured: Adequate trial, six-week response and two months sustainedrecovery. Results: Patients reporting low paternal care (paternal neglect), asmeasured by the Parental Bonding Instrument (PBI), were less likely tocomplete an adequate six-week trial of medication. Patients who reported highmaternal protection (maternal overprotection) on the PBI had poorer treatmentresponse in the short-term at six weeks, and longer term, for two months ofsustained recovery. However, abuse, whether sexual, physical, or psychological innature, did not predict treatment response. Conclusions: The experience ofhaving a neglectful father or an overprotective mother was more predictiveof response to treatment for depression than abuse, suggesting that the quality ofongoing intra-familial relationships has a greater impact on treatmentoutcomes for depression than experiences of discrete abuse in childhood.
