Despite the availability of effective treatments for child and adolescent depression, relapse rates in this population remain high.
This innovative manual presents an evidence-based brief therapy for 8- to 18-year-olds who have responded to acute treatment but still have residual symptoms. Each session of relapse prevention cognitive-behavioral therapy (RP-CBT) is illustrated in step-by-step detail, including focused techniques for promoting and sustaining well-being, supplemental strategies for tailoring treatment to each individual's needs, and ways to involve parents.
In a convenient large-size format, the book features 51 reproducible handouts and forms. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
