Depression in Childhood and Adolescence

Book Description

Depression in Childhood and Ado­lescence: A Guide for Practitioners fills a gap in the literature by provid­ing practitioners with a “go to” resource for understanding, assessing, and treating youth depression. All in one source, practitioners will find easy-to-follow and clearly worded coverage of diagnosis, bio psychosocial conceptualization, assessment, and treatment, as well as special topics in­cluding gender and developmental differences, suicidality, and the use of antidepressant medication in treatment. Cutting-edge information is supplemented with illustrative case studies designed to bring key points to life. This volume is an excellent resource for practitioners and train­ees across a variety of fields including child/adolescent psychology and psychiatry, developmental psychology, clinical social work, and school psychology.
