Treating Teens with Depression
Amy Exum, Psychotherapist with Care & Counseling at Baptist Health South Florida, affirms family therapy is really important with adolescents. “With adults we may not necessarily include other family members. But, having parents involved is going to be extremely important,” she says.
Therapists find that teens have more anger and irritability than adults. That’s why they work with the family to help them understand about that anger and irritability and what depression is, explains Graciela Jiménez, a Psychotherapist with Care and Counseling.
