||More Than Moody: Recognizing and Treating Adolescent Depression
||G. P. Putnam's Sons
||In this book, Dr. Koplewicz uses his experience as a clinician and researcher to help parents distinguish between normal teenage angst and actual depression, a serious psychiatric illness. He combines prescriptive advice and compelling stories to show parents the warning signs, risk factors, and key symptoms that distinguish this behavior from depression, an under-treated problem that can have serious long-term consequences, and that can even be life-threatening.
