Resource Title Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Adolescent Depression
Summary This psychotherapeutic approach addresses dysfunctional emotions, behaviors and cognitions through a goal-oriented, systematic process. CBT helps individuals replace "maladaptive" coping skills and is primarily used to treat adolescent depression in an outpatient setting. The treatment program is delivered in 12 to 16 weekly sessions by a trained mental health clinician or clinical social worker. Developed at the Star Center in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, CBT is recognized nationally as an effective mental health treatment. At the website click on "Educational Opportunities" then "CBT Course".
