Overview

Mood disorders are among the most common psychiatric conditions today. Based on a world-renowned course offering post-graduate training, this book bridges the gap between clinical practice and research. Coverage of each disorder includes the primary clinical aspects, including symptomatology, natural courses and diagnosis. Underlying mechanisms and treatment are discussed in the light of available empirical evidence. This volume also provides an introduction to the methods of clinical research, with emphasis on those methods of particular use and interest to researchers of mood disorders.

Mood Disorders and the previously published Anxiety Disorders are practical textbooks based on the post-graduate courses offered by the European Certificate in Anxiety and Mood Disorders, a collaborative project between four European centres of excellence in the field of anxiety and depression. As a direct result of its genesis as a course text, this book's coverage of mood disorders has universal appeal. The course is accredited by the World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry, which has also endorsed this volume.

This book will be of interest to clinical psychiatrists, residents and trainees, psychologists and pharmacologists.
