Among these people have been parents who were medical doctors, lawyers, teachers and college professors. Family pathology has nothing to do with wealth, social status, race or occupation.

However, it is important that all parents be aware of the importance of teenage depression and the need or psychotherapy. There are multiple numbers of factors that can cause our teens to become depressed and many of them have nothing to do with the family. Today, children are growing up in a world that is complex, dangersous and uncertain. In addition, their learning to cope with the opposite sex can become complicated. Breaking up with a boy or girl friend can cause grief and depression. It is a mistake to not take this seriously.

Because adolescents can be impulsive and quick to act without thinking of consequences it is vital that both families and medical doctors make themselves aware of what is happening so that they can intervene and help with their children, including getting them psychotherapeutic help.

Your comments and questions are always welcome and encouraged.
