Temporality, or the past, present, and future aspects of a person's view of their life, has been a focus of inquiry for the existential school of psychology for many years. Recently, cognitive-behavioral investigators have also focused on the variations from the normal view of the future that individuals with depressive illnesses can present
While an accumulating body of evidence exists that documents these variations, and, importantly, links them to implications for suicide risk and other clinical concerns, the theoretical implications of the earlier work from the existential school have not been addressed. This dissertation provides an overview of existing literature from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and existential schools, and compares results from a projective measure of temporality to self-report measures of depression and hopelessness in a college population. Results indicate that individuals' view of their own past, present and future are differentially involved in self-report measures of depression and hopelessness, but that identity issues, as developed by Erik Erikson and his followers, may have to be addressed in order to clarify these findings
