Treating Child and Adolescent Depression
A Handbook for Children's Mental Health Practitioners
by Linda L. Baker & Lynda Ashbourne (with consulting psychiatrist Margaret Steele) (2002)
Child and adolescent depression is a serious condition that can have both short term and long term impacts on young people and their families. The handbook was prepared for Children's Mental Health Ontario as part of their Evidence-based Practices Project to promote the recognition and effective treatment of depression in children and adolescents. This user-friendly resource is designed to enhance knowledge about depression and the promising intervention strategies currently being used to treat it. Child and youth counsellors and other professionals will use the strategies in residential and community-based settings. A tool kit with checklists, treatment objectives, and worksheets facilitates risk assessment for suicide, safety planning, and interventions to manage and reduce depression. 150 pages.
