Mood disorders affect around 1 in 5 people, but the diagnosis and management of these conditions can be challenging. This practical handbook presents a comprehensive overview of these disorders, as well as detailed guidelines for their treatment. The handbook takes a transdisciplinary approach to mood disorders, focusing not only on the biological aspects but also on psychosocial features of importance for optimal diagnosis and management. Content covers nosological considerations, historical aspects, peculiarities along the lifespan, and the associations between mood disorders and other conditions, with a focus on their implications for the optimal management of patients. Practical and evidence-based information is discussed on the role of guidelines related to treatment in selected population groups, including youth, the elderly, and women. With a practical, reader-friendly approach, this book will be invaluable for mental health professionals involved in the treatment of patients with mood disorders, including trainees from different mental health areas.

  • Adopts a transdisciplinary view of mood disorders, focusing not only on the biological features of those conditions but also on its psychosocial aspects and their implications for clinical practice
  • Conducts the reader through a multiple-axis approach regarding the nosology of mood disorders, based not only on a dimensional view of those conditions but also taking into consideration currently adopted diagnostic categories and peculiarities of mood disorders along the life span
  • Encourages the reader to think about mood disorders in a real-world scenario, taking into account the advantages and limitations of the current adopted classifications of mood disorders
