Mood: The Key to Understanding Ourselves and Others

by Patrick M. Burke Author

Mood plays a huge, central role in how we see ourselves and the world and how we cope with life's challenges. It "tunes" us to the world, emerging over our earliest development through genetic and environmental influences a our neural circuits form in the world, and evolving along with us as we grow up. The way our mood is tuned influences our resilience and vulnerabilities, how we deal with stress and trauma, and what mental health conditions—or mood disorders—we may later experience. After delving into the science of mood, the author walks us through the major mood disorders—depression, anxiety, bipolar, and more—and then discusses various treatment and healing methods.
