Description

Since the first edition of this book was published, many dramatic changes have taken place in the treatment of depressions and the related Mood Disorders. Daniel Badal discusses these changes in detail and provides psychotherapists with a general gasp of their own place and function in relation to the large field of mood or affective disorders, and to the various related depressive states. This book also presents these essential insights in a condensed but sufficiently comprehensive way in order to give those nonpsychiatrists who treat patients with mood disorders an intensive course in the clinical psychiatry as it is practiced today.show more
