Teens/Children Some authors note that teens and children represent the fastest growing segment of the depressed population. Most of what is said above, also applies to teens. They need popular, age appropriate, authoritative material on most of the topics mentioned above. Teens and children need material to help them understand themselves, their siblings, and their adult family members. Many need to cope with difficult family situations. There is considerable controversy about sexuality, addiction, and suicide. Finding quality material for younger teens and children that is age appropriate may be a problem. Censorship is a genuine concern. Realistic fiction (a sort of informal biblio-therapy) is often useful in communicating in a way that is difficult for non-fiction. This is also an area where censorship is a continuing and difficult problem, especially in more conservative material. It's difficult to provide teens and older children with the content that they need without offending someone.

Three Many library users are reluctant to ask for reference help when seeking psychological information because they don't wish to share their problem or concern. What, if anything, might a librarian do to overcome this barrier? Four Many popular self-help items are of marginal quality and utility. How would you approach developing and maintaining a collection in this area? Five Children and teens are affected by many of the same psychological information needs as adults. What collections and reference services would be appropriate for this audience? How might you anticipate and deal with controversial content?...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
