Lisa Schab is the author of Writing It Out: Self-Awareness and Self-Help Through Journaling" (now out of print.) This book stemmed from my own experience using journaling as a coping tool, and then later with clients. I have given nearly a hundred workshops on both Writing It Out and Drawing It Out, have written and taught professional training courses on "Journaling As An Adjunct To Therapy," and have also written two professional journaling courses which are sold online through Professional Development Resources. So, it is a tool I truly believe in, have experience and feel comfortable with. She has created numerous journaling exercises, suggested them to her teen clients frequently and believes that it is a very strong therapeutic tool for this age group."

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.
