Description - Mood Disorders by Mick Power
Inspired by the many developments occurring presently in the treatment of affective disorders (depression), Mood Disorders draws together the latest research findings and shows how they relate to practice. This book considers both new drugs and cognitive therapies that have been developed for unipolar depression and bipolar depression (manic depression). It also looks at psychosocial factors that may be important in the changing incidence of depression, e.g. the increase in suicide rates in young men.
