Identifying Perinatal Depression and Anxiety brings together the very latest research and clinical practice on this important topic from around the world in one valuable resource. Leading international experts, clinicians, and researchers explore the evidence for accuracy and limitations of identification methods in the context of emerging knowledge and policy implications. This book is one of the first to compare current screening guidelines, particularly those in Australia, England and Wales, Scotland, France, and the United States. Topics and controversies tackled include unresolved questions around infants and fathers, training for health professionals, integrating pathways to care with early identification, and the economics of screening. Up-to-date practical guidance on how to screen, broader assessment, and diagnosis and management is provided. Timely and comprehensive, this is the first book to offer synthesis and analysis of the current state of research and practice in early identification of perinatal mental health difficulties while also sketching out future screening technologies and areas in need of further research.
