Review quote

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. -- Peter M. Lewinsohn, Ph.D., senior research scientist, Oregon Research Institute; emeritus professor of psychology, University of Oregon 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. -- James A. Incorvaia, Ph.D., director, Reiss-Davis Child Study Center This volume is a useful resource book that highlights not only what we know, but also issues that remain unresovled in this area. Contemporary Psychology: The Apa Review Of Books 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. -- Connie Hammen, Ph.D., University of California, Los Angeles; author of Depression
