Depression in new mothers is very common, but it is often not simply a case of "the baby blues". Most mothers are suffering from general depressive disorders related to their living and/or social circumstances. Examining symptoms and causes of general depression amongst mothers, and its effects on mother-infant relationships, this book gives a comprehensive overview of the causes and effects of depressive disorders, particularly in relation to mothers and their families. It considers preventative measures, including physical treatments and counseling. Worksheets and projects for individual and group use are included. The book aims to empower students to identify the client's needs, prescribe treatment, and provide help and support for the family.
