Well organized, thoroughly researched, and conversational written, Carlsons frank, explicate guide through illness, treatment, medication, and psychotherapies is designed with the layman in mind. Based on personal experience chronicled in the second half of her earlier work, THE SUICIDE OF MY SON, Carlsons latest book contains detailed chapters dedicated to the recognition and treatment of depressive illness in the young, as well as their affects on the family, friends, classmates, and physicians involved with the sufferer. Direct and personal, written from the heart of someone whos been there, Carlsons forthright book is recommended reading as a helpful, hopeful guide through the traumatic maze of childhood depression and treatment.
