MITPP 2019 Summer Institute: The Assessment And Treatment Of Depressed Adolescents

Start Date: Saturday, June 22, 2019
End Date: Tuesday, June 18, 2019
Location: New York, NY 10023
Description: THE ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT OF DEPRESSED ADOLESCENTS
Instructor: William Salton, Ph.D.
This workshop reviews the diagnosis and treatment of adolescent depression. We will first review the diagnostic criteria and differentiate adolescent depression from adult depression and also from the “normal” difficulties of adolescence. We will then discuss how to assess depression in adolescence and how it may be disguised, along with the consideration of how to assess suicidal potential. Finally, we will examine the various etiologies of adolescent depression from a number of theoretical viewpoints (such as psychodynamic, family-systems, and cognitive) in order to present different treatment strategies. Participants will learn the phenomenology of adolescent depression, and particularly how it differs from depression in adults, learn how to formulate adolescent depression from different schools of thought including psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral, and learn how to integrate treatment methods for adolescent depression. Clinical case examples as well as characters from literature, film, and music will be used to enhance this presentation.
