Frontier Science: Understanding and treating teenage depression - T34

Thursday 5th January 2017

14:00 - 15:00

Speakers

  1. Dr Faith Orchard - School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading

Adolescence is a distinct phase of development, with a high incidence of depression. Despite this, adolescent depression has been neglected by researchers, and psychological treatments are largely based on adult work. This presentation will explore recent work which investigated characteristics of depressed adolescents that could be addressed in psychological treatment. Data will be presented on the clinical presentation and biased information processing of adolescents assessed for depression in the NHS. Our findings broadly suggest that psychological treatments are appropriate for depressed adolescents. However, future work should consider how to target specific symptoms that are not directly addressed in current treatments.
