Synopsis

Have you met the depression gremlin? He's a troublesome creature who likes nothing more than to feed off your low mood. And the more he devours, the bigger he gets and the more sadness you feel. But never fear - starve him of depression-related thoughts, feelings and behaviours and watch him shrink and shrivel away!

Part of the award-winning Starve the Gremlin series, this engaging and accessible workbook helps young people aged 10+ to understand their feelings by explaining what depression is, how it develops and the impact it can have on the lives of young people. Based on the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy and packed with valuable tips and strategies, this workbook also aims to empower the reader to change how they think and act in order to manage their depression.

Full of fun and creative activities, Starving the Depression Gremlin can help support and inform wider therapeutic work with young people with depression, and it can be used independently or with a parent or practitioner. It will be of interest to school counsellors, therapists, social workers, youth workers, teaching staff and other professionals working with young people.
