Overview

Depressive Disorder in Childhood and Adolescence Richard Harrington, University of Manchester, UK Over the past decade there has been growing recognition of the importance of depressive disorders occurring in children and adolescents. These disorders, which seem to be relatively common, are associated with serious complications such as academic failure and, occasionally, suicide, and the recurrence risk is high. This book deals with all aspects of depressive disorder in young people, including methods of assessment and treatment. It covers topics that will be of relevance to all professionals dealing with depressed children and their families but especially to psychiatrists, psychologists and primary-health-care workers. Taken from published reviews "…Professor Harrington's book is authoritative and well written. It is highly recommended to any professional who works clinically with teenagers and who wishes to learn more about the significance of adolescent depression and its treatment. I regard this book as essential for every psychiatric library and for the reading list of every clinician working in the field of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry." Journal of Adolescence "…Professor Harrington has provided a very concise and scholarly statement of childhood depression. Multiple topics are covered that child depression touches including what one might expect (e.g. suicide, bereavement) but many others as well (e.g. physical illness, temperament). This is a worthwhile statement to identify progress in childhood depression as well as to serve as a model for advances in development psychopathology more generally…" Journal of Child Psychology andPsychiatry "…As Harrington indicates, in this excellent review of the current state of knowledge, so-called major depressive disorders occur in pre-pubertal children not (as I had suggested) at a rate of about 0.1 to 0.2 per cent in six to 11-year-old children, but at about 10 times that rate (1 to 2 per cent), rising by a factor of two to three in adolescence… Harrington's book is a readable text in which he surveys the whole field in a balanced and reasonable manner." Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology This book appears in the Wiley Series on Studies in Child Psychiatry Series Editor: Michael Rutter, Institute of Psychiatry, London UK
