Audio interview, Talk of the Nation (NPR) (March 13, 2012)
Tammy Blackard Cook, AM '94, LCSW, was interviewed about distinguishing grief and depression. For years, therapists and medical professionals avoided diagnosing major depression in people who have just lost a loved one in what's known as a "bereavement exclusion." But a new proposal for the American Psychiatric Association's diagnostic manual would eliminate that exception.
