School-Based Supports for Adolescents with Depression: An Educator Training on Awareness and Intervention Strategies in the School Setting
Walsh, Danielle Leigh
ProQuest LLC, Psy.D. Dissertation, Alliant International University, San Diego
The objective of this project is to review the literature on adolescent depression with a focus on prevalence, risk factors, symptomology, comorbidity, and the need for increased awareness within the secondary school system. Adolescent depression is one of the most overlooked, undertreated, and debilitating psychological disorders (Cicchetti & Toth, 1998). Upon a review of the existing school-based interventions, an educator training was developed and presented to sixty educators in a local high school during six presentations held within one day. Feedback was gathered from each participant to help determine any increased level of knowledge of adolescent depression and the value of the suggested school-based interventions. Results confirmed that all participants had an increase in their level of knowledge. Additionally, 80% found the school-based interventions were practical for use within a classroom setting. The results of this project are intended to guide future work within the secondary school setting for addressing Tier 1 level interventions for adolescents with varying degrees of depression.
