Editorial Reviews


Tired of all those guides for idiots and dummies? This book will provide some welcome relief... The author provides a solid reference tool for anyone who works with adolescents. It is highly recommended for education professionals as well as public libraries.

(Diana Masla VOYA)

I heartily recommend this book to parents and relatives of adolescents who have or may have mood disorders. It is written clearly and simply... and with a style that helps parents to understand the complexities of the problem that is optimistic of the likelihood of improvement with correct diagnosis and treatment.

(Marcia Slomowitz, M.D. Journal of Clinical Psychiatry)

As I prepared this brief review, I found myself advising families to obtain their own copy of Dr. Mondimore's well-written, clear, and valuable book.

(Nancy A. Durant, M.D. American Journal of Psychiatry)

Clear, medically precise terminology, drawings, and diagrams.

(Healing Magazine)

This is an intelligent and well-written work with a substantial amount of detail especially about medications and how they work.

(Metaphysiology Online Book Reviews)

This well-written book is both comprehensive and scientifically rigorous. Dr. Mondimore makes the complex concepts and terms involved in the diagnosis and treatment of adolescent depression enormously accessible to the layperson.

(Neal D. Ryan, M.D., Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, University of Pittsburgh)

Dr. Mondimore has clearly succeeded in his goal of providing parents with a sophisticated summary of everything that is currently known about adolescent mood disorders. His writing combines a keen clinical skill in the care of patients with a comprehensive and sensible review of the research literature. In our clinic at Johns Hopkins Hospital, we spend a lot of time simply educating parents about these conditions, and we have badly needed a book to recommend to families. Dr. Mondimore's book more than satisfies this urgent need. This is an outstanding work that surpasses anything else I have read for parents on clinical depression and bipolar disorder in teenagers.

(Anthony J. Drobnick, M.D., Director of the Adolescent Affective Disorders Consultation Clinic, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions)

This is Dr. Mondimore's best book yet, thorough and comprehensive. He provides information that is vital for parents, pediatricians, and general practitioners trying to understand the behavioral symptoms of mood disorders in adolescents.

(Sallie P. Mink, Director of Education, Depression and Related Affective Disorders Association (DRADA))

Format: Paperback
It provided clear information about adolescent depression and helped us tremendously. I followed the sugegestions in the book during the treatment process for my child's depression. Even my child's psychiatrist found it useful. Depression is an illness that affect whole family, sick or not, in every sigle minute of the day. I learned to manage my own anxiety too. Parents and patients usually were panic due to lack of understanding of the disease. I consult this book again and again, before and after the appointment to the psychiatrist and psychologist. It really helped me and my family.
