Book DescriptionDepression is one of the most common mental health problems and is estimated to affect around 15% of people at some point during their life. For many people depression is a life-long disorder which starts during the teenage years -around 10% of teenagers are estimated to have an episode of depression and many more experience persistent low mood. This accessible companion book to Am I Depressed and What Can I do About it? follows essentially the same structure and makes use of the same case studies, but looks at the issues from the parents' point of view, and incorporates additional strategies for parents. From `what to look out for', through what the evidence says about different forms of treatment, to family communication and relapse prevention. Each section includes troubleshooting boxes.
Editorial ReviewLeave me alone, Mum! "Go away, Dad!" These might be sentences that you often hear as the parent of a teenager, but they might also be indications that your child is depressed. This is a more common problem than you might think, as around 10% of teenagers are estimated to experience some form of depression or persistent low mood. If you are concerned that your child might be depressed, this book will tell you what to look out for and help you to support them in their recovery. Written by two experts on depression in young people, this guide presents the facts (and the misconceptions) about depression, and provides strategies to help your children overcome their problems, based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques that have been proven to work. The companion volume Am I Depressed And What Can I Do About It? is a book that your children can use themselves.
