For anybody familiar with the condition known as bipolar 2, you will probably know how difficult and distressing the condition can be. Bipolar 2 Disorder is a condition most commonly characterized by at least one hypomanic (happy) episode and one major depressive episode. Firstly, what is bipolar 2? Bipolar 2 disorder, is a type of mental illness that is very similar to bipolar 1 disorder. Typically, people suffering from bipolar 2 will experience severe mood swings and changes, alternating from periods of extreme lows, to highs over time. The only real difference between bipolar 1 and 2 is that in bipolar 2, the person suffering from the condition will never experience what is known as full on "mania" type highs. The less-intense elevated moods in bipolar 2 disorder are known as "hypomania" or hypomanic episodes. Generally, people suffering from bipolar 2 disorder will have, or will experience at least one hypomanic episode in their life. Unfortunately, people suffering from this condition also suffer spells of depression, sometimes quite severe. This is where the term "manic depression" comes from. 1. Language: English.

Revision with unchanged content. Evidence supports the benefit of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) of psychosis for people experiencing psychotic symptoms, often diagnosed with schi zophrenia. This study explores whether a mentored self-help intervention with similarities to CBT of psychosis benefits people experiencing psychotic symp toms and diagnosed with major mental disorders. A self-help workbook stem ming from the British psychiatric survivor and voice hearers movements is used. Research results show significant between-group differences on the Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale subscale for Anxious Depression. While a conservative interpretation of this result is that it is due to chance, a more positive inter pretation is that the mentored self-help intervention made an improvement in participant levels of depression-anxiety. If so, this supports further research on the intervention and is particularly important as over two-thirds of those diagnosed with schizophrenia experience a major depressive episode. This book is addressed to all mental health professionals who work with clients who hear voices. Mental health service users may also find it of interest.
This book presents a new perspective on so far neglected important areas in clinical sport psychology and sport psychiatry. The authors use the results of an empirical qualitative and transcultural study, to evaluate post psychological traumata of physical injury in sport. An ethnically homogenous sample (n=7) of Chinese athletes suffering from sport injury and achievement stagnation identified by key informants was included. Symptoms of case 2 met criteria for Major Depressive Episode in DSM IV TR, and Heart Kidney Deficiency Depression in TCM. Case 6 suffered from Adjustment Disorders with Anxiety and Depression, and Heart Spleen Deficiency Depression and Pain, case 7 had a history of Adjustment Disorders with Anxiety and Depression and Dysthymic Disorder, Heart Spleen Deficiency Depression. The book speaks to professionals in sport sciences, sociology, psychology and medicine. It specifically is of relevance for coaches, athletes, sport managers, mental training counselors and to anyone who is interested in serious sport practice.
This study examined the cognitive operations and responses implicated in depression vulnerability to assess whether a depressive episode can be predicted. It involved 332 never depressed (ND), formerly depressed (FD), and currently depressed (CD) women undergoing a major life transition (motherhood or first year university), with 267 involved in the follow-up phase 3 months later. The results that emerged from this study suggest that depression vulnerability might be associated with a dysfunctional regulatory mechanism involved in mediating the affective response. However, the lack of uniform responses on the depression and mood indices, even within the respective groups, challenges the possibility of ever being able to reliably predict depression by examining discrete cognitive responses. Implications for theories and clinical practice are discussed, along with an emphasis on involving factors constituting depression resilience. A new perspective of conceiving depression vulnerability is also proposed. This perspective is in the context of complex systems and dynamic equilibriums, and explains why predicting depression might remain a problem.
This thesis describes the epidemiology of (chronic) major depression in a general population study (NEMESIS, the Netherlands Mental Health Survey and Incidence Study). The course of major depression is very heterogenous but almost 20% of those with a diagnosis of major depression have a chronic course. Illness-related factors (severity of the depressive episode, prior episodes and their duration) are the strongest predictors of a longer duration of depression. These findings have important implication for treatment.
In recent years there has been considerable research into the concomitants of adolescent smoking. Despite the widespread acceptance of the health risks associated with smoking,a considerable proportion of adults, young adults and adolescents continue to smoke regularly.In 2006, one sixth of adolescents (approximately 1,245,240) aged 12 to 17 smoked cigarettes and 586,454 used marijuana, while on an average day 4,082 initiated cigarette use and 3,577 initiated marijuana use. This work was undertaken to extend the research on the relationship between adolescent emotional states and tobacco-use by looking at adolescents who are diagnosed with a major depressive episode. This analysis sought to determine the relationship between the symptomatic expression of major depressive episodes and tobacco-use in a sample of adolescents. The focus was on tobacco products, commonly one of the first illicit drugs used by adolescents. Results suggest that adolescents who have certain significant mental health problems are more likely to increase their cigarette smoking and that this behavior is most likely to occur in the 16 17 age group, placing them at risk of becoming lifetime smokers.
