Adolescents Coping with Depression is a skills-based small-group treatment programme for actively depressed adolescents. It consists of 16 two-hour sessions delivered over eight weeks. Adolescents are taught several skills deemed to relieve depression, including assertiveness, relaxation, cognitive restructuring, mood monitoring, increasing pleasant activities, and communication and conflict-resolution. A parent component helps keep parents aware of what their teens are learning.
