8. Changes and transitions Abstract A polarization of jobs in the West between ‘lousy’ and ‘lovely’ has recently been observed. Well-paid managerial jobs have increased as have low-paid service jobs with middle-paid skilled jobs shrinking. The changing profile of work has, as always, been impelled by technological innovation. ‘Changes and transitions’ looks at the ways that job patterns have shifted over the years and examines issues such as the rise in underemployment, the use and abuse of internships, and changing retirement patterns. What is a NEET? How have some young people in Japan reacted to a turbulent job market and

7. Dreaming as delirium: sleep and mental illness Abstract ‘Dreaming as delirium’ shows that dreaming and severe mental illness are not only analogous, but identical. It is easy to imagine that physical changes in brain state can produce psychosis, but also that the perfectly normal changes of sleep have very dramatic effects on our mental capacities. Psychosis is, by definition, a mental state characterised by hallucinations and/or delusions and dreaming is most like the organic mental illness delirium. Sleep loss is common in and contributes powerfully to the development of psychosis. The connections between major depression, which is also thought

3. Who is at risk of depression? One advantage of the more consistent application of diagnostic criteria for identifying individuals with a depressive disorder is that it allows national and international comparisons to be undertaken. Large-scale studies make it possible to estimate the overall prevalence of depression, and repeating the surveys allows detection of any changes in these rates over time. Comparisons can be made between the distribution of depression cases by country, culture, economic and social status, and other demographic features such as age, gender, marital status, etc. Differences between any of these subgroups can offer important insights into

4. Models of depression Epidemiological studies of depression give important insights into populations at higher risk of depression. For example, the prevalence of depression is higher in groups living in socially adverse conditions, and is higher in those with a recent experience of bereavement. However, not everyone in these circumstances will develop a clinical depression. Theories about the causes of depressive illnesses can help to clarify the reasons for these individual differences. Here, we highlight some of the best-known biological, psychological, and social models and then discuss attempts to integrate these into a multi-dimensional theory.
