When depressed young people come to your office it’s often not by choice. Worried parents, unsure if this is just a phase or something more, come to you with kids who feel they’ve been brought against their will. They are frequently angry, alienated, and reject the idea of depression. Fear of treatment related stigma, hopelessness about the future, and distrust can cause clients to withdraw from their therapist, giving you very little to work with and leaving you frustrated and looking for ways to engage them. And even the most seasoned clinician knows the challenges of explaining complicated treatment concepts in a way young people can comfortably understand and willingly incorporate into their lives. It all adds up to a situation in which many depressed youth fail to fully participate in the therapy they so desperately need. And the consequences are real. Left untreated, depressed adolescents are at major risk of engaging in self-harming and suicidal behaviors.
They need your help.
But how do you break down resistance to treatment, build the therapeutic alliance, and instill hope in depressed kids? How do you overcome apathy and lack of motivation to engage them, letting you get down to the crucial work that needs to be done? How do you bring complicated treatment concepts to youth in ways they can easily understand and make them feel normal, in control, and part of the process?
Widely researched, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been confirmed to be an effective approach for treating depression in adolescents.
