Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression in

Children and Adolescents (CE 3)

Mary Alvord, Ph.D. and Anahi Collado, Ph.D.

Please plan to login by 8:40 AM to check-in. We will start promptly at 8:45 AM

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL: Target audience: clinicians and mental health professionals.

There is a complex inter-relationship between the “primary” anxiety disorders (social anxiety, Generalized Anxiety, Separation Anxiety), irritability, and Major Depression. These conditions may be two sides of the same coin. Furthermore, depression or anxiety in childhood or adolescence substantially increases the risk for impairment in adulthood. This makes evidence-based treatment a compelling priority for children and adolescents.

This workshop will focus on the transdiagnostic nature of depression in youth, and empirically-supported treatment strategies. We will present and demonstrate interventions including cognitive restructuring, tolerance of discomfort, and promotion of physiological awareness and psychological flexibility. The components of Behavioral Activation, an empirically-supported treatment for depression that uses a reward-oriented approach, will be discussed as a tool for transdiagnostic symptom change.

Learning Objectives

  1. Explain the complex relationship in which anxiety or depression in adolescence increases risk of illness in adults.
  2. Demonstrate two strategies to assist youth in developing healthier, alternative thoughts and actions using a cognitive behavior approach.
  3. Discuss strategies for generalization and relapse prevention.
  4. Explain theoretical foundations of Behavioral Activation and one strategy.
