Description

ìThis latest installment in the Psych 101 series is a reader-friendly discussion of one of the most common mental health disorders — depression. With the advent of the DSM-5, this book is not only timely, but it also provides a life-span approach to understanding depression.î— Doody’s Medical Reviews

Depression, often referred to as the ìcommon cold of psychopathology,î is among the most prevalent psychiatric conditions, yet it remains challenging to understand and treat. Depression 10 1 provides a reader-friendly overview of unipolar and bilpolar depression and provides the most current and intriguing scientific knowledge on this topic. Unique in its transdisciplinary and lifespan approaches to depression, the text explicitly integrates models of depression across childhood, adolescence, and adulthood.

Depression 101 establishes an organizational framework for understanding the multiple pathways that can lead to depression. It describes the fundamental distinctions between unipolar and bipolar disorders, and provides a model for understanding of mood disorders on a continuum of severity. The text illuminates how such major psychology disciplines as clinical, developmental, evolutionary, personality, and behavioral neuroscience shed light on the causes, risk factors, and treatment options for the full spectrum of depressive disorders. Cultural and gender as variables are examined as is depression across the lifespan. Additionally the text clarifies common misconceptions about depression and mood disorders, and considers how the recently-released DSM-5 affects diagnostic practice.
