How Effective Is Group Therapy For The Treatment Of Depression In Children/Adolescents?

Question: How effective is group therapy for the treatment of depression in children/adolescents?

Answer: Well there are a couple of types of group therapy that are actually quite helpful. There's a group therapy that was developed by a fellow by the name of Peter Lewinson out of the Oregon Research Institute, and people have been using that approach for the better part of 20 years. It's called the coping with depression course. And my sense of it is that the outcomes are really very, very favorable -- it's a very effective sort of treatment.

When I talk with my students about this, I say that really every school district in the country should have a coping with depression course. It's a group treatment, it's simple, it's effective, teenagers seem to like it -- there's a lot to be said for it.
