PAPERBACK
Category: Medical Academic
Synopsis
When mothers feel depressed in the months after childbirth, theirfeelings have often been dismissed as understandable reactions tothe stress of caring for a new baby, perhaps complicated by familyand marital demands. Most mothers cope, with varying degrees ofsupport and success, but for many the neglect and misunderstandingof postnatal emotional problems can lead to long-term difficulties,with implications for their families as well as for mental healthservices. This book provides an understanding of depressionfollowing childbirth which draws together current theories and asynthesis of key research with a framework for intervention. Itprovides a novel way of thinking about postnatal depression, and atreatment program which is based on this model. The clinicalprograms and interventions which are outlined have been found to beeffective at reducing postnatal depression. These programs areaimed at developing coping skills in women which: * Reduce the symptoms of postnatal depression * Improve maternal functioning in terms of self-esteem,assertiveness and coping * Address marital and partner difficulties which often arise * Deal with parent-infant difficulties the may exist * Facilitate the use and development of existing socialnetworks The authors have reviewed current knowledge on postnataldepression, and given guidelines for best practice in a variety ofapproaches to treatment and prevention, Included is a detailedaccount of a tried-and-tested 10-week treatment program, togetherwith materials and resources that a busy clinician might need toimplement a similar program. Treating postnatal Depression will bea valuable resource for clinical psychologists, counsellors,psychiatrists, nurses, health visitors, midwives and otherprofessionals who need to understand and deal with the emotionalproblems of mothers and babies. "A very readable book whichpresents an excellent overview of this important topic, and allowsthe authors to share their wealth of clinical experience in theclinical management of depressed mothers." Professor PeterLewinsohn, University of Oregon "This book is a very timely andaccessible approach for health care workers who treat women withpostnatal depression Medical interventions alone are rarelyadequate in the management of this disorder, an understanding ofthe psychological issues is essential, and this comprehensivemanual, which deals with how to approach the complexities of thedisorder, will aid workers significantly and, ultimately, benefitthose who are suffering."
