Tracy Gladstone, Ph.D.: Preventing Depression in Teens: The CATCH-IT Intervention Program
Lunchtime Seminar April 5, 2012 (57:52 min.)
Project CATCH-IT is a combined primary care/internet-based preventive intervention that aims to reduce the risk of depression in adolescents with depressive symptoms. It is designed to teach teens strategies to prevent depression. In this presentation, Tracy Gladstone, Ph.D., Director of the Stone Primary Prevention Initiatives at the Wellesley Centers for Women, describes the CATCH-IT intervention and presents pilot data suggesting that teens who participate in this intervention exhibit reductions in depressive symptoms and fewer episodes of depressive disorders over time. She also describes the efficacy trial of this intervention that is currently underway at WCW.
