The study examined the relationship between extreme levels of depressive symptomatology and age, gender, and placement label among 465 secondary-level students in special education resource programs for the seriously emotionally disturbed and learning disabled. Gender was the only significant predictor of severe depressive symptomatology, with females more frequently exhibiting severe depression. (Author/DB)
