Cognitive Behaviour Therapy in Childhood Depression

Authors


Abstract

Cognitive behavioural approaches have been used in the treatment of adult depression for many years, with much evidence of effectiveness. The paper discusses issues in the applicability of these techniques in interventions with depressed children and adolescents. Different models of CBT are discussed and a typical programme described using a case example. Work with parents, carers and other significant adults is emphasised.
