More Than Moody
Recognizing and Treating Adolescent DepressionBook - 2002
In this groundbreaking book, Harold Koplewicz, M.D., uses his experience as a clinician and researcher to help parents distinguish between normal teenage angst and true depression, a serious psychological illness with serious long-term consequences. Dr. Koplewicz's combination of prescriptive advice and compelling anecdotes show parents the warning signs, risk factors, and key behaviors to look for in their teenage sons and daughters. Furthermore, he illustrates for parents, health-care professionals, and young adults the broad range of treatment options, including the recent approval of SSRI anti-depressants for use in treating young people, as well as non-pharmaceutical approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy.
