Evidence-Based Practice in School Mental Health

This chapter reviews the literature on depression in youth. Prevalence rates, which increase in the middle and high school years, are discussed, as is the importance of addressing depression in youth. The school social worker’s role in assessment and prevention/intervention is explored given the current research status in the field. Targeted programs treating those who are at risk of depression are more effective than universal prevention, although these might be more difficult to deliver, given issues surrounding consent and potential stigma. Interventions shown to be effective for depressive disorders include cognitive-behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy. A case study is provided.

Keywords:   assessment, adolescent/teen depression, child depression, cognitive-behavioral treatment, collaboration, depressive disorders, DSM-5, interpersonal therapy, prevalence, schools
