|Title:||Combatting depression||Authors:||Carr, Alan||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/6160||Date:||Jul-2009||Abstract:||Major depression is an episodic disorder characterized by major depressive episodes and intervening periods or normal mood. This is distinguished from dysthymia, which is a milder but more persistent mood disorder, characterized by chronic low mood for at least a year in young people, accompanied by fewer additional cognitive or behavioural symptoms than are required for a diagnosis of major depressive disorder. The diagnostic criteria for a major depressive episode are described in ICD-10 (World Health Organization, 1992) and DSM–IV-TR (American Psychiatric Association, 2000).||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Sage||Keywords:||Depression;Assessment;Treatment;Prevention||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Geldard, K.
