Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"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." — Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

Book News Annotation:

This volume explains to parents how to recognize the symptoms of serious depression in young people, what treatments are available, and how parents can best help their children cope with this illness. In the 18 chapters, Mondimore (psychiatry, Johns Hopkins U. School of Medicine) addresses symptoms, syndromes, and diagnosis, with a focus on recognizing serious depression and understanding why this is a real illness. He also discusses issues of emotional development during adolescence, medications and other medical treatments, various types of psychotherapy, other problems that often complicate the picture, and how to maximize the effectiveness of treatment.

Synopsis:

Until recently, psychologists and psychiatrists believed that adolescents did not experience true depression in the way that adults do. Medical experts now realize that young people can and do get seriously depressed, and that depression and bipolar disorder may be more serious and more difficult to treat in adolescents than in adults. Depression may also be harder to recognize as an illness, both because moodiness is considered universal among teenagers and because parents often resist having their child treated for a psychiatric illness that they think — and often hope — will be just a phase.

In Adolescent Depression: A Guide for Parents, Johns Hopkins psychiatrist Francis Mondimore helps parents understand that serious depression in adolescents is an illness — an illness that can be effectively treated. He describes the many forms of depression and the many ways it can appear in young people — from intensely sad feelings to irritability, anger, and destructive rages. And he answers parents' questions, including: What are the danger signals of serious depression in teenagers? How are mood disorders diagnosed? How do medications work? What about talking therapies? How does depression relate to other problems, such as drug abuse, ADHD, and eating disorders and other self-injurious behavior? Of the one in five adults who go through a period of serious depression during their lifetime, many had their first experience of depression as teenagers. This comprehensive and compassionate guide detailing the symptoms, treatments, complications, and causes of adolescent depression provides parents with the information they need to ensure that their children receive the best possible treatment and become happy and healthy adults.
