This fourth edition of Depression in New Mothers, Volume 2: Screening, Assessment, and Treatment Alternatives provides a comprehensive and evidence-based approach to understanding the assessment for treatment and treatment of postpartum depression.

Depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder are common complications of childbirth that result in adverse health outcomes for both mother and child. It is vital, therefore, that health professionals be ready to help women with these conditions in the perinatal period. Written by a psychologist and board-certified lactation consultant, this fourth edition is greatly expanded and available as two complementary volumes. Focusing on causes and consequences of poor perinatal mental health and its treatment. It can also be used by community organizations that want to support new mothers, screen for possible depression, discuss treatment options, and refer them to appropriate care. This volume integrates current international research and includes chapters on:

Choosing an assessment scale to measure depression and co-occurring conditions

Developing a treatment plan

Supporting new mothers and families through community interventions

Using complementary and integrative therapies

Providing evidence-based psychotherapy

Using antidepressants

Depression in New Mothers, Volume 2 (4th Edition) includes case illustrations throughout and retains its focus on moving research into practice. It is an essential resource for all healthcare practitioners working with mothers in the perinatal period, including mental health providers, nurses, midwives, doctors, lactation consultants, and peer supporters.
