Dr. Norman T. Berlinger initially missed the signs of his own son's depression. But by drawing on his love for his son, as well as his skills and training as a doctor, he developed a set of techniques to help lead his son out of depression. In this book, he offers 10 Parental Partnering Strategies based on his own experiences and on interviews with parents of depressed teens and mental health professionals. Dr. Berlinger's tips will help concerned parents differentiate true depression from moodiness, be alert to suicide risks, monitor medication effectiveness, and spot signs of relapse.
One in eight teens is depressed, but Rescuing Your Teenager from Depression shows that there are ways parents can help.
