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.
However, in the current form, this book is suitable for neither group.
For instance, just starting with Question 2 the user of the book is asked if their sex drive has increased or decreased and to write notes on it. This is far from appropriate. Perhaps if the book was designed for married individuals, but not for the purported target audience.
As a professional I would never use this work for those it was apparently designed for. I should not have edit the work prior to use. My recommendation is find something better.
