Sourcebook provides insight into why children get depressed, how to
identify symptoms, and where to find appropriate treatment. Dr. Miller
distinguishes how childhood depression differs from adult depression
and how depression manifests during different developmental stages:
early childhood, late childhood, and adolescence. This unique book
also emphasizes working with schools on both the academic and social
level to help children adjust.

The Depressed Child: A Parent's Guide for Rescuing Kids
by Douglas A., Dr. Riley
From Publishers Weekly: Clinical psychologist Riley (The Defiant
Child) tackles a difficult subject with aplomb in this keenly
insightful guide for parents. "For children and adolescents, the
depressive state makes them feel like astronauts whose tethers have
been cut, and they are drifting in space," he writes. He not only
explains how to identify the symptoms of depression and the "negative
beliefs" "no one will ever like me," "I am made of inferior stuff,"
"death is an option," and so on that are so often at its core, but
also provides tools for what he terms "Planning the Rescue Mission."
Ten brief but thorough chapters cover the most common negative beliefs
that trigger depression and such companion problems as substance
abuse, prematurely intense relationships (what he calls "miniature
marriages") that blindside adolescents when they come to an end, and
suicide. Riley illustrates each point with case studies that offer
readers a chance to learn from his dialogues with his patients. He
suggests strategies for everything from closing "the physical distance
between you and your child" in order to soothe and encourage them, to
some particular lines of questioning for uncovering negative beliefs,
to the crucial, often overlooked act of listening ("your ears cannot
be fully open until your mouth is fully shut"). He also discusses when
to seek professional help and how to step in swiftly and effectively
in the case of a suicidal child. Riley's advice is commonsensical and
sound, and the concrete tools he offers in this slim, practical volume
provide a lifeline to parents of any child struggling with depression.

Teens, Depression, and the Blues: A Hot Issue (Hot Issues)
by Kathleen Winkler
From School Library Journal: Grade 7 Up-Brief chronicles of two
teenage girls suffering from depression are the hook used to draw
readers into this book. The six chapters define depression and related
disorders, their causes, symptoms, and treatments. The colorful,
upbeat format will appeal to reluctant readers. Boxed sidebars appear
throughout; some reiterate important facts from the text while others
seem superfluous. The full-color photos include shots of comedian Drew
Carey, Kurt Cobain with his band Nirvana, and Tipper Gore on 60
Minutes. The list for further reading, chapter notes, and Web sites
are all up-to-date and are evidence of a well-researched book. This
lively presentation of a rather bleak subject will be a welcome
addition to most libraries.

Undoing Depression: What Therapy Doesn't Teach You and Medication
Can't Give You
by Richard O'Connor, Richard O'Conner
