Although our knowledge of mood disorders in general is expanding steadily, comparatively little is known about bipolar depression in particular. This book brings together leading clinicians and preclinical and clinical researchers to offer the most up-to-date information about the diagnosis, treatment, and research surrounding bipolar depression.
Early chapters provide valuable diagnostic information, and review the course, outcome, and genetics of this highly heritable condition, allowing clinicians to distinguish between the various mood disorders. The book offers a thorough and unique overview of the neurobiology of the disorder, including what is known from recent neuroimaging work. Several chapters delineate the treatment of bipolar depression in special populations such as children and pregnant women, and another chapter addresses the particular issues of suicide, focusing on the need for assessment during both acute and maintenance treatment with interventions appropriate to a patient's symptoms and history. Finally, the book covers acute and long-term treatment strategies for bipolar depression, including both traditional and novel therapeutics for the disorder, as well as non-pharmacological treatments.
