Overview

This book explores whether children and young people—aged nine to fifteen years—suffering from depression could be helped using brief, focused psychodynamic psychotherapy together with parent work and family therapy. The conclusions are based on work done at the Tavistock Clinic and other centers in Athens and Helsinki.

The chapters describe the work done by the clinicians and include the scientific papers that emerged from the work. Most of the children and teens studies showed a noticeable improvement, and it is hoped that the publication of this work will encourage the use of similar approaches to working in the field.
