Depression: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy with Children and Young People provides an accessible guide to recognising and treating depression in young people. Based on a successful manual developed for research trials, this book presents an overview of a cognitive behavioural model for working with this age group, as well as practical ideas about how to start therapy. Topics covered include:

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a well-written, well-researched and clearly presented book. If you are training or trained in CBT and working in the area of depression with children or adolescents, this is the book for you." - Caroline Anstiss, Counselling Children and Young People, September 2009

"Depression provides clear, informative diagrams breaking down CBT processes and interventions in a visual format as a welcome diversion from the written word. The book offers up-to-date data, statistics and research on depression in young people... This book would make an ideal companion not just for psychotherapists and counsellors but also most professionals working in child and adolescent mental health services. It would also be of benefit to trainees in child/adolescent psychotherapy who want a firm foundation in transferring/integrating CBT skills into a more psychoanalytical framework." - Kate Lacy, The Independent Practitioner, Autumn 2009

"This is a very useful, reasonably priced resource both for mental health trainees who are learning about cognitive-behavioural therapy and also for experienced clinicians who want to check that their practice remains on model." - Sarah Helps, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, March 2010, Vol. 71, No. 3
