Depression in children and adolescents is often manifested differently than in adults. These manifestations may assume a behavioral or psychologic character. Infants and retardates are also prone to depression with peculiar manifestations. Case examples, culled from literature and Glaser’s own psychiatric practice, illustrate the author’s views on depression. Inability to diagnose youth depression, cautions Glaser, can lead to inappropriate therapy.
