2 Mood Disorders Depressive Disorders Bipolar Spectrum Disorder Cyclothymiacs DisorderMood Disorder duo to GMCSubstance induced mood disorder.
3 Depressive Disorders Major Depressive Disorder (single, recurrent) [Major Depressive Disorder: Postpartum onset]**Dysthymic DisorderDouble Depression**Postpartum depression will also be a specifier for bipolar disorder.
4 Major Depressive Disorder: Diagnostic Criteria 5 of following symptoms, must include one of first two, occurred almost every day for two weeks lead to dysfunctionDepressed moodPleasure or interest/ LossAppetiteSleep disturbance, too much or too littleAgitation or retardationFatigue or loss of energyFeelings of worthlessness or guiltDifficulty concentrating or decidingRecurrent thoughts of death or suicidal thought
8 Other Classification Melancholic Atypical Chronic(more than 2 yr) With seasonal pattern.Post partum onsetWith CatatoniaDouble depressionSub clinical depression(Minor depression)With psychotic feature
9 Dysthymic Disorder: Symptoms Depressed/irritable moodPresence of two of the following:Appetite disturbanceSleep disturbanceLow energy/fatiguePoor concentration of difficulties making decisionFeelings of hopelessnessC. Present for two year period (one year in children and adolescents)D. No evidence of a Major Depressive Epidsode during the first two years (one year for children)E. No manic or hypomanic episodeF. No chronic psychotic disorderG. Not related to organic factors
10 Dysthymic Disorder Early Onset: before 21 year old Late Onset : after 21 year oldWith or Withought Atypical feature.
11 “Double Depression” Not a diagnosis Meet diagnostic criteria for both MDD and Dysthymic Disorder
12 Manic Episode: Diagnostic Criteria A distinct period of abnormally and persistently elevated, expansive, or irritable moodMood disturbance plus three of the following symptoms (four if the mood is only irritable):Inflated self esteem or grandiosityDecreased need for sleepMore talkative than usual or pressure to keep talkingFlight of ideas, or racing thoughtsDistractibilityIncrease in goal directed activityExcessive involvement in pleasurable activitiesMarked impairmentNo psychosisNot organic
13 Hypomania: Diagnostic Criteria All the criteria of a Manic episode except criterion C (marked impairment)
14 Bipolar Disorder Bipolar I Alternation of full manic and depressive episodesAverage onset is 18 yearsTends to be chronicHigh risk for suicideBipolar IIAlternation of Major Depression with hypomaniaAverage onset is 22 yearsTends to be chronic10% progess to full biploar I disorder
15 CyclothymiaFor at least two years (one year for children and adolescents) presence of numerous hypomanic episodes and numerous periods with depressed mood or loss of interest or pleasure that did not meet criterion A (5 symptoms) of Major DepressionDuring a two-year period (1 year in children and teens) of disturbance, never without hypomanic or depressive symptoms for more than tow months at a timeNo evidence of MDD or Manic episode during the first two years of disturbanceNo psychotic disorderNo organic cause
17 Mood Disorders: Prevalence Life Time Major DepressionDysthymiaBipolar IBipolar IIMDD (Postpartum)Prevalencemale: 5 – 12 %Female : %6%0.8%- 1.6%0.5%13%
18 Epidemiology Life time prevalence : High(10-25%) Gender: Female more than Male(2, times)
19 Differential Diagnosis Mood Disorder due to GMC (Hypothyroidism)Substance Induced Mood Disorder (Amphetamine , Steroids ,…)SchizophreniaGriefPersonality DisorderAdjustment Disorder
20 Prognosis 50% attempt Suicide Un treated depression get 10 mo or more to recover75% have recurrence.5 Episode occurs long life50% full recovery.30% partial remission.20% tend to be Chronic20%-30% of Dystymic Disorder go to MDD or BMD
21 Major Depressive Disorder: Etiological Theories Biological (genetic, brain structures, neurotransmitters)Behavior and cognitionEmotionSocial and cultural factorsDevelopmental factors
22 Major Depression: Genetics Family studies:Relatives of those with a mood disorder are two to three times more likely to have a mood disorder (usually major depression)Twin studies:If one identical twin has a mood disorder the othe twin is 3 times more likely than a fraternal twin to have a mood disorder (particulrly for bipolar disorder)
23 Major Depression: Genetics Severe mood disorders may have stronger genetic contribution than less severe disordersHeritability rates are higer for females
24 Major Depression: Neurotransmitters Low levels of serotonin deregulates the activity of other neurotransmitters such as Dopamine & NE.Imbalance in cortisole & TSH
25 Major Depression: Cognition Learned helplessness (Seligman)Negative cognitive styles (Beck)
26 Learned HelplessnessAttribution of lack of control over stress leads to anxiety and depressionDepressive attributional style is internal, stable, and global
27 Negative Cognitive Styles Aaron Beck Depression is the result of negative interpretations (wearing gray instead of rose colored glasses, e.g. Eyore in Winnie the Pooh)Key Components of Negative InterpretationsMaladaptive attitudes (negative schema)Automatic thoughtsCognitive triadErrors in thinking
28 Seligman and Beck Seligman Attributions are: Internal Stable Global I am inadequate (internal) at everything (global) and I always will be (stable).“Dark glasses about why things are bad”Interpretation (theory)BeckNegative interpretations about:ThemselvesImmediate world (their place)Future (their place)I am not good at school (self). I hate this campus (world). Things are not going to go well in college (future).“Dark glasses about what is going on”Description
29 Major Depression: Social and Cultural Factors Stressful life eventsSocial support (marital relationship) (see chart)GenderCulture (see chart)
31 Ethnicity and Prevalence of MDD Percentage by Ethnicity
32 Treatment Major Depression: Overview Biological TreatmentsMedicationECTSpecial note about antidepressants and childrenPsychological TreatmentsCognitive TherapiesInterpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)NIMH Collaborative Treatment Study
34 Antidepressant Medication with Children The effectiveness of antidepressant medication with children is questionable.December 2003 British drug regulators told physicians to stop writing perscriptions for all but one of the newer generation of antideressant drugs to treat children under 18.Benefit did not outweigh the risks (including suicidal thoughts and behavior and agression)Prozac was exempted.
35 Controversy Pro Medication Cost of untreated depression is high Depression itself is lethal (particularly in teens)Indisputable proof that it works in their own clientsQuestioned the adequacy of the studiesAnti MedicationReview of 11 studies of effects of medication in children revealed that the risks outweigh the benefitsEvidence based practice is guided by the results of research not clinician’s opinions

39 Childhood Onset Depression Special Topic 1Childhood Onset Depression
40 Childhood Onset Depression: Historical Aspects Initial ViewPsychoanalytic: developmentally children could not experience depressionSadness results from loss of valued object/personSadness results in hostility and aggressionDepression is result of inward hostilityChildren lack superego development to direct aggression toward self
46 Suicide 8th leading cause of death in the U.S. Overwhelmingly white phenomenaSuicide rates also quite high in Native AmericanRate of suicide is increasing in adolescents and elderlyMales are more likely to commit suicideFemales are more likely to attempt suicide (except China)
