Depression in Adolescents
Depression in adolescents

We begin this chapter with a case study of adolescent depression and a discussion of the case study. Next we discuss prevalence, including gender differences in the prevalence of adolescent depression. Then we give an overview of the symptoms, signs, and assessment of adolescent depression. We follow this with a discussion of close relationships, treatment, and prevention. We also have a brief section regarding concerns about suicide in adolescents. Finally, we cover certain special topics and present clinical guidelines, a chapter summary, and some suggested readings.
