Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders 2nd Edition (2008)
A family can be disrupted after the birth of a child when the mother experiences postpartum mood and anxiety disorders. In the past, the term postpartum depression was used as a catchall phrase for many postpartum emotional symptoms. As more research is conducted on postpartum mood and anxiety disorders, distinctions among these disorders are emerging that help to differentiate postpartum depression from other mental illnesses occurring after birth. This monograph includes information on risk factors that increase the chances of a mother developing postpartum mood and anxiety disorders, primary prevention interventions, secondary prevention interventions, screening scales for identifying women and nursing interventions. 2.2 contact hours will be awarded for this activity unil 12/31/14.
