The table was a large one, but the three were all crowded together at one corner of it. “No room! No room!” they cried out when they saw Alice coming. “There's plenty of room!” said Alice indignantly, and she sat down in a large arm-chair at one end of the table.
Lewis Caroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Our current understanding of the multidimensionality of psychological events reveals that we have choices as to how to describe them. Each choice brings with it its own hypothesis about the etiology of the event and determines the appropriate interventions for addressing it. For example, an event may be described as a state of depression (mind), a change in body chemistry (body), a detachment from important others (context). Each of these descriptions implies its own etiology and its own therapeutic response.
