BATTLING THE BLUES
The Handbook for Helping Children and Teens With Depression
Paperback with reproducible pages
By Kim Frank. This handbook explains depression in understandable terms and provides practical coping strategies. The resource is divided into two sections—one for adult professionals and caregivers, the other for kids. The adult section discusses factors that contribute to depression, the symptoms of depression, and types of treatment, and lists suggested resources. The ten "blues busters" in the second section provide children and teens with strategies (accompanied by activity pages) that range from practicing positive self-talk to taking care of one’s physical well-being. Grades 3–8. Bibliography. Illustrated. 8½" x 11". National Center for Youth Issues. 93 pages. ©2007.
