Depression in children and adolescents can be a chronic, debilitating condition with major impact on family, social and intrapsychic life. Early detection facilitates early treatment, a key to preserving a child's continued growth and development. The presentation of depression can be complicated by co-morbid diagnoses, psychosocial stressors within the family, developmental differences and medical illnesses. This volume seeks to disentangle some threads, weave others together, and to generally span the current research in etiology, biology, phenomenology, and treatment of depression in children and adolescents.
