Abstract

In many ways, the study of depression in children is a relatively recent enterprise. Stirred partly by an NIMH conference on the topic (Schulterbrandt & Raskin, 1977), interest in the clinical and research literature has burgeoned in recent years. One of the reasons for the lack of earlier progress was the multitude of definitional issues and theoretical conflicts that surround the construct of childhood depression. This chapter attempts to outline some of these problems and some of their possible resolutions. Measurement problems follow from the definitional and theoretical issues. A host of new scales have been developed to assess depression as a diagnostic syndrome, or as a dimension of psychopathology. Scales assessing related dimensions also have importance in the overall assessment picture. Instruments of these various types are reviewed here. Treatment studies are only beginning to appear, so that the relationship of specific scales to treatment choice or outcome assessment is somewhat speculative. Some speculations are offered.
