Abstract
Dealing with Depression is a workbook for teens that explains depression and teaches three antidepressant skills you can use to help overcome or prevent it. The skills are presented in a step-by-step way so you can learn them easily and apply them to your life. Sometimes these antidepressant skills can be used on their own, when the mood problem isn't too severe, and sometimes they have to be used along with treatments by professionals. Either way, practicing these antidepressant skills will help you deal more effectively with low mood and depression.

When Jake was three years old at Miss Lulu’s Dainty Diaper Day Care Center, what did he know about bullies? Nothing. But he learned fast--too fast! Why? Because Jake is kind of smart, and he’s not a tattletale, and he doesn’t have a big brother to protect him. He’s a perfect bully-magnet. But now that Jake is in fourth grade, he can look back and see that the year that made the difference was second grade. That’s when Link Baxter moved to town. Link was a SuperBully, and Jake had his hands full just trying to survive. Then it was class project time, and who did the teacher assign to be Link’s partner? You guessed it. Jake has to use all his smarts--and his heart as well--to turn himself into Jake Drake, Bully Buster.

Abstract
This is a brief tale of two mice and two humans who live in a maze and one day are faced with change: someone moves their cheese. Reactions vary from quick adjustment to waiting for the situation to change by itself to suit their needs. This story is about adjusting attitudes toward change in life, especially at work. Change occurs whether a person is ready or not, but the author affirms that it can be positive. His principles are to anticipate change, let go of the old, and do what you would do if you were not afraid.
