Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Children and teens are increasingly being diagnosed as depressiveAperhaps because modern life is becoming more challenging or possibly because treatments that have proven effective for adults also work well for children. A staff physician with the Division of Adolescent Medicine at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, Kaufman presents a good primer on treating teen depression. All of the major topics are covered in clear-cut language: how to find a therapist, possible treatments (including therapy and drug treatments, as well as alternative remedies), suicide prevention, and treatment of related substance abuse and anxiety disorders. Recommended if your library doesn't own Gerald D. Oster and Sarah S. Montgomery's Helping Your Depressed Teenager: A Guide for Parents and Caregivers (Wiley, 1994). The Depressed Child, on the other hand, is not recommended. Riley, a clinical psychologist, offers some interesting suggestions here and there (e.g., the importance of hugging a depressed child), but his idea that a parent should undertake to "rescue" a child who is suicidal or hallucinating is irresponsible. Such kids need professional help. David G. Fassler and Lynne S. Dumas's "Help Me, I'm Sad": Recognizing, Treating, and Preventing Childhood and Adolescent Depression (Viking, 1997) is a better recent title.

Again have not had a chance to read - but am a little disappointed that I did not look at the copyright date (2001) I believe the information may be outdated - DH
