In addition to our preceeding study on Depression in Puberty, which was printed in this journal, Vol. 9,1985,a further analysis of similar CDS data is reported in this paper, in which the emphasis has been put upon the study of the correlation between two kinds of mood-gloom and pleasure, which CDS analyses in its unique way. CDS results in two groups, one consisting of 60 children aged from 12 to 14 who were attending school normally, the other consisting of 14 children of similar age range who had been hospitalized in a psychiatric ward mostly because of their refusing to attend school, were compared. Consequently, the structure of mood at the depressive state of children in puberty was revealed more clearly. The results seemed to support the suggestion that the true form of the depression can be defined as 'inability to experience pleasure.
