Pharmacological Treatment of Depression and Anxiety in Children and Adolescents.
Waterman, G. Scott; Ryan, Neal D.
School Psychology Review, v22 n2 p228-42 1993
Notes that studies examining efficacy of pharmacological and psychosocial treatments of depressive and anxiety disorders in children and adolescents are relatively rare; that current clinical practice bases pharmacological treatment decisions on few existing studies, open clinical data on children and adolescents, and extrapolation from adult studies; and that clinical practice frequently employs psychosocial treatments prior to pharmacological ones.
