Despite the availability of effective treatments for child and adolescent depression, relapse rates in this population remain high. This innovative manual presents an evidence-based brief therapy for 8- to 18-year-olds who have responded to acute treatment but still have residual symptoms. Each session of relapse prevention cognitive-behavioral therapy (RP-CBT) is illustrated in step-by-step detail, including focused techniques for promoting and sustaining well-being, supplemental strategies for tailoring treatment to each individual's needs, and ways to involve parents. In a convenient large-size format, the book features 50 reproducible handouts and forms. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.


“This book provides a clear, comprehensive description of RP-CBT, the only evidence-based intervention currently available for relapse/recurrence prevention in formerly depressed children and adolescents. This intervention is shorter, simpler, and more personalized than standard CBT; it really represents the state of the art in child and adolescent depression treatment. The book reflects the expertise of the authors, who are highly qualified researchers and clinicians.”

—Paul Rohde, PhD, Senior Research Scientist, Oregon Research Institute
