Full Description:   

This timely, authoritative volume provides an integrative review of current knowledge on child and adolescent depression, covering everything from epidemiology and neurobiology to evidence-based treatment and prevention. From foremost scientist-practitioners, the book is organized within a developmental psychopathology framework that elucidates the factors that put certain children at risk and what can be done to help. Proven intervention models are discussed in step-by-step detail, with coverage of cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and pharmacological approaches, among others. Special topics include sex differences in depression, understanding and managing suicidality, and the intergenerational transmission of depression.

"Abela and Hankin have produced a superb volume on models of vulnerability and intervention in child and adolescent depression. Leading scholars cover key topics in a field that has exploded in the past decade. Each chapter not only critically reviews current knowledge, but also presents a developmental psychopathology perspective, making the volume unique among edited books in the field. All of the major topics in etiology, treatment, and prevention are addressed, as are such special issues as gender differences and youth suicide. Many of the chapters present original, integrative models. This highly readable book is an excellent resource for practitioners, scholars, and students alike."
-Constance Hammen, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles
"This comprehensive text is written and edited by leading experts on the etiology and treatment of depression in youth. The book provides an interdisciplinary developmental perspective, and will serve as an excellent text for graduate or advanced undergraduate seminars. Both students and research scientists at all levels will find this an invaluable resource. The editors are to be congratulated on this outstanding, major contribution to our understanding of child and adolescent depression."
-Judy Garber, PhD, Department of Psychology and Human Development, Peabody College of Vanderbilt University
