Join psychiatrist and national speaker and expert David Mays, M.D., Ph. D., in this current and in-depth seminar recording on mood disorders, their treatments and comorbidities. Within the next 10 years, depression alone will account for the second highest cause of disability in the world, second only to cardiac disease. Bipolar disorder has the highest rate of suicide death of any of the major mental illnesses. Mood disorders create enormous suffering and dysfunction, and remain stubbornly resistant to treatment. Because the best treatment follows from the best diagnosis, you will learn from Dr. Mays about depression and bipolar disorder in great detail. From childhood to the older adult population, you will take home a clear understanding of epidemiology, presentation, and symptoms. Learn the biological theories that attempt to describe what goes wrong in the brains of people with mood disorders as well as state-of-the-art mood disorders treatment, including therapy, prescription and alternative medication, and brain stimulation. Case studies and client videos all serve to make this a lively and practical discussion of challenges posed by these disorders. The day ends with a practical approach to suicide risk assessment and the crucial role of hope in the therapeutic process.
