'This outstanding volume offers complete, thorough coverage of theoretical and empirical work on youth depression. It will be an invaluable resource for practitioners seeking a review of contemporary issues in the field, as well as students beginning their studies of unipolar depression in children and adolescents. The chapters offer an excellent integration of developmental psychopathology theory, prevention science, and clinical interventions. The volume presents concise, yet exhaustive reviews from an outstanding set of contributors.' -Mitchell J. Prinstein, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA

5.0 out of 5 stars A core and strongly recommended addition 3 Mar. 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Expertly compiled and deftly edited by John R. Z. Abela (Associate professor and William Dawson Scholar in the Departments of Psychology and Psychiatry, McGill University, and Director of the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Clinic, Montreal Children's Hospital) and Benjamin L. Hankin (Assistant Professor of Psychology, University of South Carolina), the "Handbook Of Depression in Children And Adolescents" is a compilation of contributions by some of the foremost scientist-practitioners working in the field of juvenile depression, its origins and treatments. Utilizing a framework of developmental psychopathology, the "Handbook Of Depression in Children And Adolescents" divides the articles into five major sections: Introduction and Epidemiology of Depression; Etiology of Depression; Treatment of Depression; Prevention of Depression; and Special Populations. Presenting an impressive body of seminal studies, and enhanced with both an Author Index and a Subject Index, the "Handbook Of Depression in Children And Adolescents" is a core and strongly recommended addition to both professional and academic library Psychology & Psychiatry reference collections and supplemental reading lists.
