AbstractPostpartum depression (PPD) is more intense than the ‘baby blues’, and may last for months to years without treatment. PPD may have significant, as well as devastating, consequences, but is often under-detected and under-treated. Screening questions and questionnaires can be used to identify patients with PPD, and psychosocial strategies (e.g. pee r support, professional counselling), psychotherapy (e.g. cognitive behavioural therapy, interpersonal therapy) and pharmacotherapy (e.g. brexanolone, sertraline) can be used to treat the disorder. Severe and refractory cases may benefit from electroconvulsive...

Specific multiprofessional treatment approaches which centre on the mother-child relationship demonstrate successes with regard to depression in the mothers and also on the development of a secure mother-child bond and are thus a protective factor in the development of the affected children.

Conclusion Currently available pharmacotherapies for PTSD are poorly effective on a substantial proportion of patients. Given this high rate of pharmacological unresponsiveness, further studies are needed to extend the knowledge of the basic mechanisms associated with the pathophysiology of this disorder. The findings discussed in this review suggest that DAergic dysfunction, especially genetic-dependent DAergic alteration, plays a prominent role in the pathophysiology of PTSD; as a consequence, drugs targeting the DAergic system might be therapeutically relevant. A better understanding of how and which DAergic dysfunctio...

Conclusion It is clear that clinically, there is still much to be learnt about alexithymia and its relationship with a range of related phenomena. Firstly, is alexithymia a continuous and stable trait independent of psychological or somatic symptomology that is developed during childhood? Or is it instead a reactive state induced by trauma and distress at any age, which serves to defend against intense and upsetting emotions? This impacts on treatment options. For example, should we be focussing on early childhood interventions which target the child's emotional environment and parenting to encourage emotional exp...
