Although depression in adults has been widely studied, the investigation of depression in youth has emerged more recently as a growing field. Despite relatively low rates of depression in children prior to adolescence, the literature indicates that prevalence of depression increases after puberty. This chapter covers the predominant psychosocial treatment approaches commonly used to treat depression in youth. It also covers critical issues to consider, a review of the literature on interventions and the effectiveness, and recommendations for future research. Recent developments in the treatment of depression have positive implications for the field; however, there is currently a need for more widely available effective treatments for youth with depression across settings and care models.
