Running head: TREATMENT FOR MOOD DISORDERS: Treatments for Mood Disorders: Comparing and Contrasting Biological and Psychosocial Approaches Stephanie Bollman South University Online 1 TREATMENT FOR MOOD DISORDERS: 2 Treatments for Mood Disorders: Comparing and Contrasting Biological and Psychosocial Approaches. Abdu’l-Missagh, M. D. (2015). Depression: Biological, Psychosocial, and Spiritual Dimensions and Treatment. Depression is among the common mood disorders and a cause of death worldwide. The treatment of this mood disorder is diversified and applies several approaches, which include a psychosocial approach as well as the biological approach (Abdu’l-Missagh, 2015). Another approach that that can be applied in treating depression is the spiritual approach. Several psychosocial approaches can be used in the process of treating depression. One such approach is cognitive behavior therapy, and it is commonly used. Another psychosocial approach is psychodynamic therapies, which are also widely used in treating depression (Abdu’lMissagh, 2015). Depression is currently being seen as a medical disease and therefore attracting the use of biological approaches in its treatment. The article focuses on my topic since it presents both treatment approaches that the topic is focusing on. These two approaches are the psychosocial approach as well as the biological approach. Additionally, the article is basically focused on depression and its treatment. Depression is a mood disorder, and hence the article is relevant to my selected topic.

The Egyptian Journal of Hospital Medicine, 70(5), 745-753. TREATMENT FOR MOOD DISORDERS: 3 Bipolar disorder is a mood or psychiatric disorder that can be a major cause of death, especially where the patient decides to commit suicide. The major objective of the research discussed in the article is to establish the most effective approach in the treatment of the bipolar disorder (Bin Jabal et al., 2018). Clinical trials should be used to establish a mood disorder’s stage before undertaking treatment. According to Bin Jabal et al. (2018), CBT is one of the most effective psychosocial treatments that are applied in bipolar disorder management. Another psychosocial approach that is applied by individuals in the treatment of the bipolar disorder is family-focused therapy. The findings of the study indicated that bipolar disorder is one of the primary concerns in public health and requires an immediate and effective response. This article is focused on my selected topic since it argues how a psychosocial approach can be effective in the process of treating the mood disorder. Further, it discusses how medications such as mood stabilizers can be effective in treating mood disorders. it is approximately two years old and hence offers up-to-date information Knight, M. J., & Baune, B. T. (2017). Psychosocial dysfunction in major depressive disorder— rationale, design, and characteristics of the cognitive and emotional recovery training program for depression (CERT-D). Frontiers in psychiatry, 8, 280. Depression is directed linked to psychosocial dysfunction. Some of the elements which seem to affect psychosocial dysfunction include emotion processing as well as impaired cognition. The psychosocial approach of treating depression is focused on an individual’s day to day ability to be contented with social activities (Knight & Baune, 2017). Existing evidence indicates that the psychosocial approach is effective in treating mood disorders. TREATMENT FOR MOOD DISORDERS: 4 According to Knight & Baune (2017), to worldwide, depression is among the major causes of deaths, and several hundreds of millions of people are affected. This is a clear indication that the treatment of depression should be taken more seriously and the most effective approaches established. Most treatments currently available for treating mood disorders are not effective. This is because they do not tackle psychosocial functioning. The article is focused on my selected topic since it discusses standard treatment approaches for mood disorders. The article is based on research that is collected directly from the field. This article is also relevant to my topic since it is focused on the major depressive disorder as well as psychosocial dysfunction. Additionally, the article is up-to-date as it was published three years ago. Miziou, S., Tsitsipa, E., Moysidou, S., Karavelas, V., Dimelis, D., Polyzoidou, V., & Fountoulakis, K. N. (2015). Psychosocial treatment and interventions for bipolar disorder: a systematic review. Annals of general psychiatry, 14(1), 19. According to Miziou et al. (2015), the symptoms of bipolar disorder tend to persist even after the application of pharmacotherapy. This is a clear indication that more affordable and effective psychosocial intervention is necessary to ensure effective treatment of the disorder. The phase of the disorder plays a key role in establishing the functionality of a particular psychosocial intervention. The method used in the collection of data contained in the article involved a thorough sampling of 78 papers from a total of 7,332 papers to (Miziou et al., 2015). The findings of the research indicated that CBT has a significant effect and can be applied in the effective treatment of bipolar disorder and, more specifically, during the acute stage. TREATMENT FOR MOOD DISORDERS: 5 The article is focused on my selected topic since it lays a lot of emphasis on the treatment of the bipolar disorder, which is among mood disorders. Besides, one of the major treatment strategies that the article focuses on is the psychosocial approach. Notably, this is one of the approaches which my topic is focused on. Also, the article evaluated the biological approach in the treatment of the bipolar disorder. Meltzer-Brody, S., Howard, L. M., Bergink, V., Vigod, S., Jones, I., Munk-Olsen, T., … & Milgrom, J. (2018). Postpartum psychiatric disorders. Nature reviews Disease primers, 4(1), 118. During pregnancy, women are very vulnerable to postpartum psychiatric disorders (PPDs). This is a serious mood disorder that must be addressed to avoid any adverse effects on the life of the mother as well as the unborn child (Meltzer-Brody et al. 2018). Other mood disorders that expectant women are exposed to include post-traumatic stress disorders, as well as obsessive-compulsive disorder. Different psychosocial approaches are applied in order to minimize the maternal symptoms of these disorders. According to Meltzer-Brody et al. (2018), families and expectant women should be offered psycho-education on the advantages and disadvantages linked to each treatment method. In the global setting, there is a need to offer expectant women the most effective psychosocial therapies in case they develop any mood disorders. Besides, the psychosocial approach is more effective at this state as opposed to the biological approach. This article is focused on my selected topic as it offers several treatment strategies that can be applied to an expectant woman experiencing mood disorders. One of the strategies proposed by the article for use is psychosocial therapy. The article narrows down to specific TREATMENT FOR MOOD DISORDERS: 6 therapies, such as CBT. Besides, the article was published recently and hence offers up to date information. Muneer, A. (2016). The neurobiology of bipolar disorder: an integrated approach. Chonnam medical journal, 52(1), 18-37. Bipolar disorder is a serious mood disorder that can result in disabilities. The purpose of this article was to lay a biological approach to addressing the bipolar disorder (Muneer, 2016). Further, the article also focuses on new therapeutic targets in the management as well as the treatment of Bipolar disorder. Among all psychiatric conditions, bipolar disorder is unique due to the manner in which its symptoms are manifested (Muneer, 2016). Notably, the symptoms range between two opposite mood states, which are depression and mania. Evidence indicates that biological approach can be effective in the treatment of bipolar disorder. This is due to the fact that there is a significant association between biological systems and the disorder. Further, there are higher chances of biologically predisposed individuals being affected by the disorder. The major cause of the disorder is stress, and it can be psychologically or biologically meditated (Muneer, 2016). Therefore there is need to apply both biological and psychological approaches in the treatment of the bipolar disorder The article is focused on my selected topic since it discusses a major mood disorder, which is bipolar disorder. Further, the source is relevant as it lays emphasis on the use of the biological approach in the treatment of bipolar disorder. Further, the article is reputable since its authors are experts in the psychiatry field.
