Introduction | References
The six chapters in this section are organized according to
treatment modalities. We had a choice of organizing the section
according to mood disorders or according to major treatment modalities.
Because the different treatment modalities (e.g., psychotherapy,
antidepressant medications, electroconvulsive therapy) are often
applicable to more than one mood disorder group, we chose to present the
modalities, specifying the disorder groupings for which each modality
would be appropriate.
