Psychosocial intervention just as good as CBT for depression

05 Dec 2016 5:44 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

This study randomised adolescents with depression in to three groups (cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), short-term psychoanalytical therapy and a brief psychosocial intervention)

There was no difference between any of the groups at 12 months follow-up.

Take home message - support, clinician-young person relationships and follow-up are probably the most important aspect of care of depressed young people!
