|Title:||Differentiating Subtypes of Postnatal Depression Based on a Cluster Analysis of Maternal Depressive Cognitions||Contributor(s):||Church, Nicole (author); Dunstan, Debra (author) ; Hine, Donald W (author); Marks, Anthony (author)||Publication Date:||2009||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/7258||Abstract:||Based on the analysis of cognitive style, this study demonstrated that women experiencing postnatal depression (PND) fall into two categories: (a) those with a general cognitive vulnerability to depression and for whom childbirth is a non-specific stressor; and, (b) those whose depression is directly related to the stressful demands of motherhood. Studying an Australian sample of 406 postnatal women who completed the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS), the Dysfunctional Attitudes Scale (DAS-24), and the Maternal Attitudes Questionnaire (MAQ), hierarchical cluster analysis identified three groups distinguished on the basis of depressive symptomatology and/or the nature and strength of maladaptive cognitions.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Prenatal & Perinatal Psychology and Health, 24(2), p. 89-98||Publisher:||Association for Pre- & Perinatal Psychology and Health||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||1097-8003||Field of Research (FOR):||170106 Health, Clinical and Counselling Psychology||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||920209 Mental Health Services||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 250
