The Postpartum Effect Book Description :

The past decade has seen strides in the diagnosis and treatment of postpartum depression, which affects 400,000 women annually in the United States. Yet the most tragic of these cases—the filicides and suicides that spark tabloid frenzy—continue to be horribly misdiagnosed. Dr. Arlene Huysman, drawing on decades of clinical work, here describes the postpartum effect, the missing key to treatment. Dr. Huysman’s book is designed to educate the general public, and to serve as a tool in the care provider’s hands. In The Postpartum Effect the author records anonymous first-person testimonies from mothers who were tempted to harm their children. She constructs a profile of mothers at greatest risk of the disease. All leading up to the central question: What drives a mother to the ultimate travesty? Dr. Huysman’s measured, empirical approach is a plea for understanding.

Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM 5 Book Description :

This new edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5®), used by clinicians and researchers to diagnose and classify mental disorders, is the product of more than 10 years of effort by hundreds of international experts in all aspects of mental health. Their dedication and hard work have yielded an authoritative volume that defines and classifies mental disorders in order to improve diagnoses, treatment, and research. The criteria are concise and explicit, intended to facilitate an objective assessment of symptom presentations in a variety of clinical settings -- inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital, consultation-liaison, clinical, private practice, and primary care. New features and enhancements make DSM-5® easier to use across all settings: The chapter organization reflects a lifespan approach, with disorders typically diagnosed in childhood (such as neurodevelopmental disorders) at the beginning of the manual, and those more typical of older adults (such as neurocognitive disorders) placed at the end. Also included are age-related factors specific to diagnosis. The latest findings in neuroimaging and genetics have been integrated into each disorder along with gender and cultural considerations. The revised organizational structure recognizes symptoms that span multiple diagnostic categories, providing new clinical insight in diagnosis. Specific criteria have been streamlined, consolidated, or clarified to be consistent with clinical practice (including the consolidation of autism disorder, Asperger's syndrome, and pervasive developmental disorder into autism spectrum disorder; the streamlined classification of bipolar and depressive disorders; the restructuring of substance use disorders for consistency and clarity; and the enhanced specificity for major and mild neurocognitive disorders). Dimensional assessments for research and validation of clinical results have been provided. Both ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes are included for ea

Perinatal and Postpartum Mood Disorders Book Description :

"As a psychotherapist and educator of future mental health practitioners, I believe this work fills an important gap in reference books for professionals who care for childbearing women. Since the volume provides invaluable neurobiological research on depression and anxiety, I recommend this work to all health and mental health professionals."--Illness, Crisis and Loss Over the past three years, pregnancy related mood disorders have become the focus of health care advocates and legislators alike with subsequent reflection in nationwide media. Statistics on the prevalence of perinatal mood disorders suggest that up to 20% of women experience diagnosable pregnancy related mood disorders. The growing recognition of these common disorders, coupled with an increasing knowledge base about the dire consequences of untreated maternal depression, has propelled this issue to the fore of national public health priorities. This increasing awareness has also resulted in recent legislative and healthcare initiatives to screen, assess, and treat such disorders. On April 13, 2006, Governor Jon S. Corzine (D -NJ) signed a law requiring all new mothers to be educated and screened for postpartum depression. This law is the first of its kind in the country, but many states and federal advocates are proposing similar laws. The motivation for states and the federal government to adopt education and screening program is high and may soon be a federal mandate. But a major barrier to successful implementation of such programs is the lack of available resources to train healthcare professionals in this specialty. This book offers a major resource for healthcare professionals, mental health professionals, and medical, nursing, psychology, and social work students who will be confronting this problem in their practices. The contributions, by renowned experts, fill a glaring gap in the knowledge professionals need in order to successfully manage maternal mental health.

Effects of Postpartum Fatigue and Depressive Cognitions on Life Satisfaction and Quality of Life in Postpartum Women Book Description :

Background: One out of eight women experience depressive symptoms during the postpartum period. In addition, approximately 63.8% of new mothers are affected by fatigue during the postpartum period, making this the most common problems affecting women during that period. Aims: The purpose of this study was to explore the relationships among postpartum fatigue, depressive cognitions, resourcefulness, quality of life and life satisfaction of the Arab postpartum mother. Additionally, the study examined if there was a mediating effect of resourcefulness on the relationship between the process regulators (DC and PPF) and the mother's quality of life outcomes (quality of life and life satisfaction) during the postpartum period. Theoretical Framework: The conceptual framework for this study based on the middle range theory of resourcefulness, which was developed by Zauszniewski in 2006. Methods: A cross-sectional descriptive design was used with 123 postpartum women who gave birth less than 6 months ago. "What's App" and Facebook were used for recruitment. The survey was constructed in both Arabic and English. The self-administered online survey was developed in Qualtrics and data were collected from January 6th to February 6th, 2017. Linear regression was used to address the research questions and to test the mediating effect of resourcefulness. Results: There were moderate significant correlations between depressive cognitions and resourcefulness (ß = -.38, p

Mood and Anxiety Disorders During Pregnancy and Postpartum Book Description :

Mood and Anxiety Disorders During Pregnancy and Postpartum earns its important place in the literature by detailing our current understanding of the course, diagnosis, and treatment of psychiatric illness during pregnancy and postpartum, including breast-feeding -- a top priority today because we now know that active maternal psychiatric illness during pregnancy and postpartum can exert long-term negative effects on child development and cause significant morbidity for the mother. In just five concise richly informative chapters, the nine distinguished contributors to Mood and Anxiety Disorders During Pregnancy and Postpartum dispel prevailing beliefs and offer invaluable guidance in treating women during pregnancy and postpartum: Course of Psychiatric Illness During Pregnancy and the Postpartum Period -- Despite the enduring belief that pregnancy is a time of emotional well-being for women, emerging data show that pregnancy is instead a time of increased vulnerability to psychiatric illness. Diagnosis and Treatment of Mood and Anxiety Disorders During Pregnancy -- Though the use of psychotropic medications during pregnancy and postpartum raises concerns, the accumulating data support the use of certain SSRIs/tricyclic antidepressants, especially when balanced against the risk to both mother and child of depression during pregnancy. Management of Bipolar Disorder During Pregnancy and the Postpartum Period: Weighing the Risks and Benefits -- Although the onset of bipolar disorder (BP) tends to occur during women's reproductive years, surprisingly little is known about the impact of the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, postpartum, breast-feeding, and menopause on the course and treatment of bipolar disorder. Postpartum Mood Disorders -- Women experience a dramatic increase in their risk of developing severe psychiatric illness during postpartum for a full year after delivery. Often overlooked, postpartum disorders must be identified and treated as early as possible to redu
