Title in English: Depressive Disorders: An Integral Psychiatric Approach, from the series: Bolk's Companions for the practice of Medicine
Abstract / summary in English:
This book describes clearly how a systemic approach, recognizing the coherence and interconnectedness of symptoms, can provide a richer image of the diagnostic fingerprint in depressive disorders. This becomes the basis for individualization in therapy. The patient’s role and the quality of the patient/therapist relationship are essential constituents of treatment. The book presents an excellent overview of various scientific perspectives in the field of depressive disorders. Case studies illustrate how the enriched diagnostic fingerprint leads to an improved therapeutic approach in practice.
This book should be required literature in medical school. It is also a source of knowledge for all mental health care workers, especially those who are active in the field of depressive disorders.
