Applications for Adolescents with Depression

Personalized Intervention for Psychosocial Problems

This webinar provides evidence and a rationale for clinicians as they consider alternative approaches to seeking a useful treatment match with clients. Applications are specific to adolescent depression but have implications for a broader array of mental health problems.


  • Describe depression, adolescent development and disruption of the threat system.
  • Briefly review the evidence based treatments already available to treat adolescent depression and the limitations of these approaches.
  • Consider the solution of personalization.
  • Be exposed to an approach in which biological markers predicting treatment response are identified.
