The first book to study the phenomenon of depression among teenagers specifically and comprehensively, Understanding Your Teenager's Depression has been newly updated to provide an impressive overview of what it is like to be a teenager today-and what options are now available to make things better. Including up-to-date information on the multiple causes and manifestations of depression-anger, rebellion, eating disorders, sexual promiscuity, truancy, and suicide-this indispensable book also explores the role of learning disabilities in depression, gender and cultural factors, and family relationships and dysfunction.
Armed with the information and understanding to effectively combat this debilitating condition by recognizing the frequently obscured symptoms of depression, parents will discover:
- How to identify early warning signs
- The differences between the symptoms of adolescent depression-and those of adult depression
- How to help teens cope with school-related difficulties
- The links between depression and medical factors
- Problems associated with substance abuse and other risk-taking behavior
- What to expect-and not expect-from therapeutic sessions and other professional help
- And much more
