Depression is the second most disabling disorder in the world. On a daily basis, virtually all practicing psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers confront patients with primary or secondary depression. The wealth of information available globally on depression is enormous, but has not been summarized into a comprehensive encyclopedia-until now.

Experts from around the globe have been selected to present interdisciplinary coverage of all the essential issues related to depression, including use of medication, treatment therapies and models, symptoms of Depression, related disorders, and more. Entries are conveniently organized into subcategories in order to provide the most in-depth coverage of each subject.

Entries include:

• Adolescent Depression
• Behavioral Treatment
• Cognitive therapy
• Dopamine
• Double Depression
• Heredity
• Human Immuno-deficiency Virus (HIV)
• Personality Disorders
• Smoking
• Suicide Warning Signs

In summarizing the vast amount of information on depression, The International Encyclopedia of Depression serves as an authoritative resource for researchers, patients, students, and laypeople.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Heather Huang, MD (University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health)
Description: This encyclopedia captures the wealth of information currently available on depression.
Purpose: The purpose is to summarize the vast amount of information on depression and to serve as a resource for healthcare professionals, researchers, and the public.
Audience: It is intended for the public, clinicians, researchers, students, patients, and families.
Features: Among the many topics covered in an alphabetic format are the psychological aspects of depression, comorbid psychiatric and medical disorders, epidemiology, and various psychotherapeutic treatment strategies. The larger focus is on the demographics, epidemiology, diseases comorbid with depression, and psychological components of depression, but it does provide very basic information on treatment management strategies.
Assessment: This encyclopedia distills an amazing amount of information into a book that is easy to read and navigate. Each section is concise and to the point, discussing how that particular subject is relevant to depression. This would serve as a great reference for anyone with an interest in depression. The focus is psychological focus, with less information on medically based diagnostic and treatment strategies.
