Although the somatic treatments can effectively decrease depressive symptoms, the opportunity of the full recovery from depression in women is still limited. This study aimed to explore the recovering process from depression in the perspective of depressive middle-aged Thai women using the qualitative research method of grounded theory. The participants consisted of 31 women who were diagnosed with major depressive disorder in the three medical school hospitals in Bangkok. Building rapport and in-depth interviews were the main methods for data collection, and constant comparison and theoretical sensitivity were the basic analysis methods. Refocusing oneself has been found to be a basic social psychological process of recovering from depression. This process consists of 3 phases—losing self-worth, learning about depression, and refocusing oneself. The first phase explains how the women lose their self-worth until they recognize the deviance of their life. The second phase consists of three overlapping sub-phases—depressive self-management, seeking help, and contemplation about self. Finally, the final phase involves untying the knot and performing self-growth. By better understanding the process of recovering from depression, nurses and other healthcare providers can develop intervention to facilitate full recovery from depression of the middle-aged Thai women. The healthcare policy and education policy can also be implicated with gender sensitivity. Future research also needs to be carried out to derive at a formal theory and to expand the scope of knowledge about depression. AN: MN030294
