9780801870583: Adolescent Depression: A Guide for Parents

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.

Book Description:

Tired of all those guides for idiots and dummies? This book will provide some welcome relief... The author provides a solid reference tool for anyone who works with adolescents. It is highly recommended for education professionals as well as public libraries.

(Diana Masla VOYA)

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.

(Marcia Slomowitz, M.D. Journal of Clinical Psychiatry)

As I prepared this brief review, I found myself advising families to obtain their own copy of Dr. Mondimore's well-written, clear, and valuable book.

(Nancy A. Durant, M.D. American Journal of Psychiatry)

Clear, medically precise terminology, drawings, and diagrams.

( Healing Magazine)

This is an intelligent and well-written work with a substantial amount of detail especially about medications and how they work.

( Metaphysiology Online Book Reviews)

This well-written book is both comprehensive and scientifically rigorous. Dr. Mondimore makes the complex concepts and terms involved in the diagnosis and treatment of adolescent depression enormously accessible to the layperson.

(Neal D. Ryan, M.D., Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, University of Pittsburgh)

Dr. Mondimore has clearly succeeded in his goal of providing parents with a sophisticated summary of everything that is currently known about adolescent mood disorders. His writing combines a keen clinical skill in the care of patients with a comprehensive and sensible review of the research literature. In our clinic at Johns Hopkins Hospital, we spend a lot of time simply educating parents about these conditions, and we have badly needed a book to recommend to families. Dr. Mondimore's book more than satisfies this urgent need. This is an outstanding work that surpasses anything else I have read for parents on clinical depression and bipolar disorder in teenagers.

(Anthony J. Drobnick, M.D., Director of the Adolescent Affective Disorders Consultation Clinic, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions)

This is Dr. Mondimore's best book yet, thorough and comprehensive. He provides information that is vital for parents, pediatricians, and general practitioners trying to understand the behavioral symptoms of mood disorders in adolescents.

(Sallie P. Mink, Director of Education, Depression and Related Affective Disorders Association (DRADA))
