Review Quotes
Essau and Petermann have produced a distinguished collection of essays on depression in children and adolescents, a field that has blossomed only in the past decade or so. Authored by expert researchers in their fields, the chapters are comprehensive in coverage and analysis of issues, with ample attention to both clinical and theoretical topics. Both researchers and clinicians will be informed by the book, and it will serve as an important resource for future developments in the field.
Professors Essau and Petermann have successfully achieved their goal of providing a comprehensive and scholarly overview of depressive disorders in children and adolescents. The authors are all in the forefront of this rapidly growing area of empirically and clinically important research. A very valuable addition to the literature,t his book is a must-read for clinicians.
This book educates therapists to understand that child and adolescent depression does not always express itself developmentally in the same way in young people as it does in adults. A must for all who wish to understand, diagnose, and treat this population. After completing it, the reader will be left with the unique feeling of having just dined at a four-star restaurant.
This volume is a useful resource book that highlights not only what we know, but also issues that remain unresovled in this area.
