Modelling & Managing the Depressive Disorders

Modelling and Managing the Depressive Disorders – The major psychiatric classification systems, such as DSM and ICD, define depression as essentially a single condition varying only by severity; however, there are major problems with this approach. In this book, the authors expose the weaknesses in the existing models, and describe a new approach to sub-typing and managing depression based on there being some specific sub-types (such as melancholic and psychotic depression), as well as other conditions distinguished and shaped by stress factors and predisposing personality styles.

 

They argue that depression can exist as a disease, a disorder, a syndrome and a normal reaction, and therefore requires a multi-modal approach to conceptualisation and management.

This book will assist you in identifying and warding off the most common types of energy vampires who feed on your energy and make you susceptible to health, emotional, and financial problems. Here you will find explicit instructions for how to identify and separate from energy vampires so that they are no longer using your energy to fuel their dysfunctional lives.
