About this item

This guide describes a behavioral activation program to help adolescents between the ages of 12 and 18 overcome depression. It was modified from behavioral activation treatment for adult depression and emphasizes the role of positive reinforcement and punishment in the environment and the function of depressive behaviors in an individual's life, building rewarding responses and activities to deal with these triggers, and overcoming avoidance that may maintain a negative response cycle. The guide details the impact of depression on adolescents, current treatment findings, the behavioral model of depression, and the behavioral activation approach; assessment, case conceptualization, and treatment planning; implementation of the approach; management of treatment challenges, such as suicidal behaviors; applications of behavioral activation with other clinical samples and situations, such as anxiety and chronic pain; and the 12-session approach, with information on session goals, the structure and teaching points, the agenda, outlines, and key concepts, as well as handouts.
