Description - Coping with Depression in Young People by Carol Fitzpatrick
Depressive disorders, while common among teenagers, are also responsible for dramatic changes in behaviour. Knowing how to deal with a teen in emotional turmoil is a daunting task for any parent. Offering parents sensible advice on distinguishing between ordinary adolescent ups and downs and depression, this title is a practical guide to fully understanding depression in adolescents and successfuly negotiating this emotionally trying time. With information on special concerns parents may have, including self-harm, alcohol and drug abuse, and suicide, this is a useful reference.
