This is a guidebook for teenagers who are depressed or at risk for depression. This guide discusses depression and provides guidance on cognitive-behavioural therapy principles to help teens take a problem-solving, strategy-based approach to deal with depressed moods, thoughts and behaviour. Intended to serve as an adjunct to therapy, this is a very practical and easy-to-read book that is not overwhelming for teens. Ages 13+.
