Overview

Helping Your Teenager Beat Depression presents the authors' unique strategy that enables parents to become effective partners in the treatment of their child's depression. Whether their teen is withdrawn, sad, angry, or anxious, parents can immediately begin to help their child and themselves by using the L.E.A.P. program, a problem-solving strategy based on cognitive-behavioral therapy, a widely-recognized and proven treatment. With L.E.A.P., the goal is to identify, empathize with, and change depressive behaviors and attitudes, thereby improving the teen's outlook and responsiveness to treatment. Use L.E.A.P. to address minor mood problems and reduce the risk of relapse, and in conjunction with professional therapy for more serious depressive disorders. The commitment is minimal -- perhaps 10-20 minutes per week -- and the benefits can be substantial.
