NewtonAbstractMajor depressive disorder and related illnesses are globally prevalent, with a significant risk for suicidality if untreated.

Conclusions: BI affects 1 in 10 mothers, and although BI and PPD are strongly associated at 6-8 and 12-15 months after delivery, BI at 6-8 months is the main predictor of later BI. Based on the study findings, PPD screening in combination with BI assessment is highly recommended during the first year of child's life. PMID: 31438746 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

DiscussionD’un point de vue psychothérapeutique, il apparaît important de considérer le style d’attachement en tant que facteur de risque, voire peut-être en tant que vulnérabilité psychopathologique. D’un point de vue clinique, nous devons prendre ce paramètre en compte pour expliquer la situation clinique des patients.SummaryContextA wide literature has demonstrated how attachment style can impact symptomatology, for instance anxious, depressive, and post-traumatic symptoms. Life as a student, as a transition period between adolescence and adulthood, consti...
