About the Author:

Ian H. Gotlib, PhD, is the David Starr Jordan Professor of Psychology at Stanford University and Director of the Stanford Mood and Anxiety Disorders Laboratory. In his research, which is supported by the National Institute of Mental Health, Dr. Gotlib examines information-processing styles of children, adolescents, and adults suffering from depression; patterns of brain activation of depressed patients in response to emotional stimuli; and genetic, neural, hormonal, and cognitive aspects of risk for depression in young children of depressed parents. Dr. Gotlib has published over 300 scientific articles and is the author, coauthor, or editor of several books in the areas of depression and stress. Constance L. Hammen, PhD, is Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles, and also has an appointment in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. She served as chair of the Clinical Psychology Program at UCLA for 13 years. Dr. Hammen’s research interests include risk factors for depression and bipolar disorders, with a particular focus on family, social, and stress processes in depression, as well as genetic and neuroendocrine factors. Her current work involves offspring at risk due to parental depression. Dr. Hammen has written and coauthored numerous articles, books, and textbooks, and has developed widely used interview methods for assessment of acute and chronic life stress.

Review:

"Gotlib and Hammen have assembled an outstanding group of experts on depressive disorders. This fully updated second edition offers comprehensive, authoritative coverage of diagnosis, epidemiology, genetics, neurobiology, affective neuroscience, treatment, and illness across the lifespan, among other topics. This volume will appeal to practicing psychologists and psychiatrists, depression researchers, graduate students, and residents. It is the reference for scientific and practical knowledge on depression."--Richard C. Shelton, MD, James G. Blakemore Research Professor of Psychiatry, Vanderbilt University Medical Center

"An impressive array of distinguished researchers has come together once more to update this comprehensive book on the perplexing human problem of depression. The volume presents detailed information on the human costs of depression as well as its multiple etiologies, recalcitrant nature, differing presentation across ages and cultures, and, of course, the psychosocial and pharmacological avenues for treating it. The second edition provides good depth of content on current neuroscience and genetics, without neglecting the importance of stress and the interpersonal and social context. Not only does this handbook capture the explosion of knowledge and increasing sophistication of research in the field, but it also focuses attention on what still needs to be done to understand and serve the unmet needs of people with depression in our communities."--Kia J. Bentley, PhD, LCSW, Director, PhD Program in Social Work, Virginia Commonwealth University

"Identifying, organizing, and expanding on the cutting-edge studies that define the field, Gotlib and Hammen once again demonstrate the breadth and depth of their knowledge of depression. This thorough and readable handbook allows both beginning and advanced practitioners and researchers to understand what is known about depression and to see what is yet to be discovered. Given its attention to all aspects of depression across cultures and the lifespan, this is an ideal text for a seminar on mood disorders."--Robin B. Jarrett, PhD, Elizabeth H. Penn Professorship in Clinical Psychology, Department of Psychiatry, The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas
