Counter Perspectives in Psychiatry Volume 2 Diagnosis of Depression J.P. Feighner and W.F. Boyer Feighner Research Institute, San Diego, California, USA Depression is common, multifaceted and treatable. This book brings together a wide variety of views, methods and disciplines in the modern, symptom-orientated diagnosis of depression. Beginning with a historical overview and an epidemiological survey of depression, it includes important summaries of the rationale behind classifications such as ICD-10 and DSM-IV. It also reviews key areas such as masked depression, biological markers, recurrent brief depression and chronic resistant depression. This book focuses on a comprehensive and systematic global approach to the diagnosis of depression and will be of value to all psychiatrists and physicians with clinical or research interests in this subject.
