Perinatal depression (PND), a major depressive episode during pregnancy and the first postpartum year (American Psychiatric Association, 2013; Gavin et  al., 2005), is estimated to occur in 12% to 19% of the general U.S. population (Gavin et al., 2005; O'Hara&McCabe, 2013). However, rates of PND are substantially higher among immigrant and U.S.-born Latinas living in the United States at 11% to 50% (Kuo et  al., 2004; Lara, Le, Letechipia,&Hochhausen, 2009). Latinas are an important group because of their high fertility rates (Passel, Livingston,&D'Vera, 2013) and high psychosocial risk factors, ...

Methods: A PRISMA-based systematic literature review was conducted of studies published in English before February 2016 that looked at treatment for postpartum depression in low-income women who had been identified with...

Conclusions This feasibility study found that both interventions promoted meaningful reductions in stress and depressive symptoms and improved reported eating behaviors in a high-risk group of pregnant women. Each intervention has a potentially different pathway —acceptance for MMT and reappraisal for EBT. Larger studies are needed to test efficacy on longer term reductions in stress and overeating.

AbstractNeurotrophins, including brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), are expressed in the hippocampus, as well as their precursors, the pro-neurotrophins. The neurotrophins signal through specific tyrosine kinase receptors and the low affinity receptor p75NTR. Moreover, the pro-neurotrophins are considered to be biologically active by signaling through specific receptors. The neurotrophins, especially BDNF, are involved in processes related to learning and memory. Furthermore, it is thought that BDNF also plays a crucial role in major depression. This points to a role of BDNF as a central regulator of neuronal plasti...
