Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Some of these [books in the PACTS series 2] are quite outstanding guides for practitioners, full of practical steps to take and worldly wisdom as well as good theretical grounding ... The one on Depression and Attempted Suicide is by Alan Carr and, again, is thorough and broad in its approach, not shying away from medication if this is required in addition to psychological therapy ... Overall I would recommend that this series is present for anybody working with adolescents, as they provide a very useful guide for trainees to get stuck in with treatment." Stephen Scott, Institute of Psychiatry, London, Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Volume 9, No. 2, 2004, pp 92-96
