In this new, thoroughly revised and updated edition, an international, interdisciplinary team of mental health experts draw together the latest findings in the psychopathology of depression in young people. Combining theory and practice, the psychological, neurochemical, and genetic causes are discussed and an account of the clinical characteristics and frequency of the condition is given. The key questions are fully addressed: the importance of life events and difficulties in the onset and continuation of depression; the efficacy of current psychological therapies and the role of medication; how depressed young people progress into adult life, and how depression arises and the effects it may exert on brain and behavior during this crucial developmental period. This book will appeal to child psychiatrists and psychologists, developmental psychologists, neuroscientists, and mental health professionals in clinical services.

Industry Reviews

'Ian Goodyer has assembled an internationally recognized group of researchers as authors ... In the resulting tour de force, we are taken from an exposition of the development of emotional behavior and understanding, through the contributions of temperament, attachment and personality development, to depressive vulnerability. ... Each chapter contains a depth of information not found in usual textbooks and a subtlety of understanding that only experts of international standing who are reviewing the areas of their own research can provide ... this book documents, with references, the great strides child and adolescent psychiatry and psychology have made in the past 30 years.' The New England Journal of Medicine 'Rather than being just another text book on depression, this volume has adopted a broad perspective ... [and] ends in an excellent overview of the findings on the continuity between childhood and adult depression and the key issues which need to be addressed by further longitudinal research. This book has benefited from the contributions of most of the experts in the field ... I strongly recommend that professional institutions dealing with young children make this book accessible to a wide range of professionals.' Eric Fombonne, Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry 'The most outstanding aspect of this book is its attempt to integrate rather complex developmental theory with the description and phenomenologic literature on depression in children. It does an excellent job of discussing how development affects the presentation of depression and, conversely, how depression affects subsequent development, and would thus be of considerable interest to the more psychodynamically oriented clinician or clinician who treats very young children.' Doody's Journal 'The book would be worth buying alone for the chapter on the development of emotional regulation and emotional response ... I can fully recommend this book to all child psychiatrists and all those interested in child and adolescent depression.' Michael Fitzgerald, Psychological Medicine '... excellent coverage of diverse aspects of depression in childhood and adolescence ... moves beyond the descriptive level of analysis to delineate the processes by which children and adolescents come to be at risk for, or are protected from, depression. This focus is particularly salient given the pressure faced by clinicians and researchers alike to identify which interventions are most effective for which populations under a variety of service delivery conditions.' Janet Shapiro, Social Work in Health Care '... succinct review of the pertinent literature presented in the chapters on development, epidemiology, and etiologic factors. Clinicians who wish to read about this particular disorder (and others in future volumes) will be rewarded with, as Dr Goodyer states 'a coherent account of current knowledge'.' Michelle Kim-Leff, American Journal of Psychiatry '... 25 internationally distinguished researchers present the latest understanding of depression'. Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic '... this extensive multi-authored text is a 'state-of-the art' exploration of child and adolescent depression, and as such, is required reading for clinicians and researchers in the area.' Florence Levy, Psychological Medicine
