From the Back Cover:

Protect your child from depression for life--without medication

The most precious gift you can give your child isn't a generous trust fund or a top-notch education--it's the resiliency and unwavering sense of optimism that allow a person to thrive no matter what challenges life sends their way. Yet researchers are finding that increasing numbers of very young children are at risk of depression. Now, in Raising an Optimistic Child, you'll learn how to bring about lifelong happiness in your child--even as young as infants--and protect him or her from the pain and damage of depression.

Inspired by the authors' two decades of pioneering work as well as recent findings in psychology, neurobiology, and genetics, Raising an Optimistic Child offers a seven-step, relationship-based program for alleviating or preventing childhood--and adult--depression that has proven more effective than controversial drug therapies and standard psychotherapeutic approaches. With the benefit of real-life stories of families who have experienced firsthand the results of their work, psychologist Bob Murray, Ph.D., and therapist Alicia Fortinberry arm you with the tools you need to:

  • Understand most common causes of childhood--and lifelong--depression
  • Spot the early signs of depression--even in very young children
  • Prevent your own depression from infecting your child
  • Enhance your child's learning and coping skills
  • Foster good body image and avoid eating disorders in your child
  • Deal with ADD/ADHD and difficult behaviors without drugs

About the Author:

Clinical psychologist Bob Murray, Ph.D., and therapist Alicia Fortinberry teach their groundbreaking method at leading universities and multinational corporations. They are coauthors of Creating Optimism.
