children too often depressionDepression is not only in adults but also in children. In an attempt to understand the mechanisms of depression in childhood physiologists and doctors carry out numerous experiments. Very often depression in children causes parents ' divorce or the death of a grandparent, says Constance wood, physiologist from Houston. In fact, depression is observed up to 2.5% of children and up to 8.3% of adolescents in the United States, according to the National Institute of Health of the Brain. Doctors agree that if depression sooner we can diagnose and begin treating the child recover quickly. Most doctors uses psychotherapy, sometimes combined with medication treatment. Charles Tischler, Professor of psychology from the State University of Ohio notes typical signs of depression in children - the child written at night, not sleeping, running away from home. Adolescent depression is characterized by a constant sadness or irritability, loss of interest in what once was very interested in, changes in appetite or sleep, lethargy, difficulty concentrating, etc. If five or more of these symptoms persist for two weeks or more, we can confidently make the diagnosis of clinical depression. Treatment of depression depends on the age of the child. Young children often treat game therapy, inviting them to play with dolls or other toys to help them to openly Express their feelings. If the children are older and more talkative, talk with them, give them to talk. If necessary, the doctor will prescribe an antidepressant. How long does therapy depends on a number of factors, including the severity of the depression. If depression is the result of divorcing parents or the death of relatives, the wound in my soul heals relatively quickly, possibly within 3 - 6 months of weekly sessions..
