The first section provides epidemiological data and classification of different subtypes of bipolar disorders.
This book brings together mental health professionals and researchers to offer the most up-to-date information on the diagnosis, treatment, and research surrounding bipolar depression. Its individual chapters provide valuable diagnostic information, allowing clinicians to distinguish between the various mood disorders. Further, they: review the course, outcome, and genetics of this highly heritable condition; offer a thorough overview of the neurobiology of the disorder, including what is known from neuroimaging work; delineate the treatment of bipolar depression in special populations such as children and pregnant women; address suicide, focusing on the need for assessment during both acute and maintenance treatment with interventions appropriate to a patient's symptoms and history; and cover acute and long-term treatment strategies for bipolar depression, including both traditional and novel therapeutics for the disorder, as well as non-pharmacological treatments.
