Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Severe Postpartum Depression After the September 11 World Trade Center Terrorist Attacks

Miriam Pierce, CSW, BCD

Ms. A was referred for a severe postpartum depression. She had given birth four weeks earlier, shortly after the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. She reported that she had not been able to sleep for several weeks and feared she would descend further into the nightmares that kept her awake and in despair. She had been nursing her healthy baby girl but experienced fantasies of being devoured by her. The psychiatric consultant who had referred her recommended medication with the possibility of hospitalization if the severity of the depression did not abate. Dyadic infant-parent treatment as well as individual treatment for the mother were used to prevent the development of an attachment disorder in the child and to promote the mother's recovery from her severe depression. These interventions prevented the hospitalization that the referring psychiatrist had believed might become necessary.
