Tracy Gladstone, Ph.D.: Preventing Depression in At-Risk Adolescents: The CATCH-IT Intervention Program
Lunchtime Seminar April 24, 2014 (54:07 min.)
In this lunchtime seminar, Tracy Gladstone, Ph.D. presented on the CATCH-IT program, a primary care technology-based depression prevention program targeting adolescents who are at risk for depressive illness. CATCH-IT includes 14 web modules that teach strategies from behavioral activation, cognitive behavioral therapy, and interpersonal psychotherapy to strengthen protective factors and reduce vulnerability to depressive disorder. Preliminary studies reveal that the CATCH-IT intervention is acceptable to adolescents, and that the use of this intervention is associated with long-term decreases in depressive symptoms and disorders at follow-ups ranging from 6-12 months.
