editore: American Psychiatric Press Inc.

pagine: 352

In the ongoing quest to improve our psychiatric diagnostic system, we are now searching for new approaches to understanding the etiological and pathophysiological mechanisms that can improve the validity of our diagnoses and the consequent power of our preventive and treatment interventionsAventuring beyond the current DSM paradigm and DSM-IV framework. This thought-provoking volumeAproduced as a partnership between the American Psychiatric Association, the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, and the National Institute on Drug AbuseArepresents a far-reaching attempt to stimulate research and discussion in the field in preparation for the eventual start of the DSM-V process, still several years hence. The book -Explores a variety of basic nomenclature issues, including the desirability of rating the quality and quantity of information available to support the different disorders in the DSM in order to indicate the disparity of empirical support across the diagnostic system. -Offers a neuroscience research agenda to guide development of a pathophysiologically based classification for DSM-V, which reviews genetic, brain imaging, postmortem, and animal model research and includes strategic insights for a new research agenda. -Presents highlights of recent progress in developmental neuroscience, genetics, psychology, psychopathology, and epidemiology, using a bioecological perspective to focus on the first two decades of life, when rapid changes in behavior, emotion and cognition occur. -Discusses how to address two important gaps in the current DSM-IV: (1) the categorical method of diagnosing personality disorders and their relationship with Axis I disorders, and (2) the limited provision for the diagnosis of relational disordersAsuggesting a research agenda for personality disorders that considers replacing the current categorical approach with a dimensional classification of personality. -Reevaluates the relationship between mental disorders and disability, asserting that research into disability and impairment would benefit from the diagnosis of mental disorders be uncoupled from a requirement for impairment or disability to foster a more vigorous research agenda on the etiologies, courses, and treatment of mental disorders as well as disabilities and to avert unintended consequences of delayed diagnosis and treatment. -Examines the importance of culture in psychopathology and the main cultural variables at play in the diagnostic process, stating that training present and future professionals in the need to include cultural factors in the diagnostic process is a logical step in any attempt to develop comprehensive research programs in psychology, psychiatry, and related disciplines. This fascinating work, with contributions from an international group of research investigators, reaches into the core of psychiatry, providing invaluable background and insights for all psychology and psychiatry professionalsAfood for thought and further research that will be relevant for years to come.

Psychiatrists and other mental health care and medical professionals can now turn to a truly authoritative, up-to-date reference for current information about mood disorders. The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Mood DisordersAincluding a wealth of illustrations, tables and referencesApresents the state of the art in diagnosis, psychobiology, pharmacotherapy, and psychotherapy across the vast spectrum of mood disorders: Symptomatology and Epidemiology: -Historical aspects and social underpinnings of mood disorders. -Classification and rating scales. -Global burden (the high costs of depression and bipolar disorder). Pathogenesis: -Neurochemistry and psychoneuroendocrinology. -Cognitive processing models (experimental cognitive research). -Evolutionary explanations (the normal role of low mood in disengaging individuals from goals they cannot reach). Methods of Investigation: -Anatomical pathology (strengths and limitations of human postmortem studies). -Molecular and cellular neurobiology of severe mood disorders (abnormalities in the regulation of signaling). -Genetics of bipolar and unipolar disorders. Types of Mood Disorder: -Psychotic depression (distinct from nonpsychotic depression in presenting features, biology, familial transmission, course, and response to treatment). -Seasonal affective disorder (use of light therapy in SADS and also in other depression). -Secondary depression with medical illness (calling for large-scale studies to gauge treatment efficacy). -Major depression seen in primary care (as prevalent as hypertension). -Substance abuse (a long-standing source of controversy). -Sleep disorders (risk factors for the new onset of depression). Treatments: -Pharmacotherapy (including tricyclics and tetracyclics, MAOIs, SSRIs and newer antidepressants, lithium and other mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, hormonal interventions, and augmentation strategies). -Brain stimulation techniques (such as ECT, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and vagus nerve and deep brain stimulation). -Psychotherapies (cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and psychoanalytic/psychodynamic). Pertinent Factors: -Personality (the need for further study of the degree and the etiologic nature of relationships between specific traits or disorders and major depression). -Culture (suggesting a model of cultural consultation using multilingual, multicultural clinicians and culture brokers to supplement routine care). -Gender (women being about twice as likely as men to have mood disorders) -Age (pediatric and geriatric depression and suicidality). Offering a fascinating synthesis of the multifaceted field of mood disorders, the richly informative American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Mood Disorders will prove invaluable for psychiatric and medical practitioners, educators, students, and residents interested in the latest breakthroughs in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of mood disorders.
