9781585622924: Clinical Manual for Diagnosis and Treatment of Psychotic Depression

Psychotic depression is a dangerous and debilitating illness that, tragically, often has fatal consequences. Studies indicate that between 16 per cent and 54 per cent of all depressed adults suffer from a psychosis. While this condition is completely treatable, thousands of cases remain misdiagnosed or overlooked because of a lack of interest and awareness among clinicians, the pharmaceutical industry, and the National Institute of Mental Health. As the first comprehensive guide to cover assessment, treatment, and management of patients with psychotic depression, "Clinical Manual for Diagnosis and Treatment of Psychotic Depression", by Dr. Anthony Rothschild, is an invaluable resource for both clinicians and students. Drawing on his own experience in clinical care and careful consideration of the existing medical literature, Dr. Rothschild systematically describes the history, epidemiology, and possible biological causes of psychotic depression and outlines various approaches for diagnosis and assessment. He then offers a practical guide for individualized treatment strategies for psychotic depression, such as electroconvulsive therapy, psychotherapy, and recent breakthroughs in pharmacologic treatment. In addition, Dr. Rothschild identifies issues of care and management for specific patient populations - including seniors, adolescents, women in the postpartum, and patients at risk for suicide - in a variety of treatment settings. Each chapter includes the following features to emphasize the data and further enhance learning: detailed tables and charts; key clinical points that summarize the main ideas of the chapter; a recommended reading list of books and periodicals that address similar topics; and, analysis and review of relevant clinical studies.

Review:

I value this small reference volume and will encourage colleagues to purchase it. That sentiment is not based solely on the fact that I will enjoy seeing it on my shelf as a part of my growing collection of reference manuals. My primary motivation for recommending it will be the fact that it addresses a surprisingly large and important gap in our knowledge base about common mental health disorders. Dr. Charles E. Drebing, PsycCRITIQUES This manual goes a long way toward filling the gaps in our understanding of psychotic depression while giving strong clinical guidelines for improving the treatment of those with the disorder. It is a welcome addition to any mental health professional's library. David B. Roat, D.O., Psychiatric Services

About the Author:

Dr. Rothschild has spent more than 25 years treating patients with psychotic depression and studying the challenges inherent in diagnosing and managing this serious disorder. His findings are compiled in this easy-to-read, evidence-based manual that can benefit clinicians at all levels of training, including psychiatrists, psychologists, neurologists, internists, family and general practitioners, nurses, social workers, and clinical students. While much remains to be discussed regarding the nature of psychotic depression as a distinct illness, the existing knowledge about this condition is too significant to be ignored. The only comprehensive manual of its kind, Clinical Manual for Diagnosis and Treatment of Psychotic Depression is an important reference for any psychiatric setting.
