Holiday Break Episode 3: What we know about Pediatric Seasonal Affective Disorder

Release date: January 9, 2022


In this third mini Holiday Break episode, I look at the research on Pediatric Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). I present its definition, describe its prevalence, explore why we should care, and describe treatment options. Links to the research I cite are below. Full-length Talking About Kids episodes will return later in this new year.
