5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book Nov. 24 2010
Although written specifically for depressed teenagers, this book's exercises are just plain good exercises for ANY teen to go through at some point. I say this because a lot of these activities can be used to build and develop good qualities in a person. For instance, there are activities that help build self-esteem and self-confidence. And let's face it, if kids had more of these kinds of qualities there would be a lot less troubled youths around.

Anyway, I'll get off my soapbox. The book addresses the problem of depression in a workbook format. This really works because it gives the reader more than one option to treat their depression. For instance, there is a "higher power" exercise that might work better for more religious oriented teens, while others may find that the exercise activity suits their personality and likes more (recommend "Exercise Beats Depression" for further reading on that). With some FORTY activities, well, there's going to be something here for everyone.

In conclusion, its a great book, written in plain language with a lot of diverse activities- and a great resource for anyone suffering from depression.

5.0 out of 5 stars YOU NEED THIS WORKBOOK!!! July 15 2009
By S. Kirk - Published on
My daughter was having a hard time with divorce,self-esteem and anger (and impending teenager-hood). I was at my wits end and needed help immediately. I went right up to Barnes and Noble and found this miracle of a workbook and within twenty minutes, my daughter was diving into it and feeling empowered. (no exaggeration) It is a wonderful way for a child to work through their emotions without feeling that they are "being made to". She has even brought it with her on her little vacations to continue her path. Something I did not even suggest. Lisa has done great job with a great resource. I look forward to reading more of her books. Well done Lisa!!!

By Delphine M. Herman - Published on

I utilize this book for ideas and activities with teens in my internship as a mental health counselor. As with most workbooks this one is also cognitive-beahorial based and while that is not my theory of choice many of the activities and knowlege are helpful. I find myself re-tooling them to fit into my way of working. All in all a very nice resource and often I will go to the shelf to get it and another counselor has borrowed it. That in itself speaks highly for this workbook.
