Dr. Eric Stice developed a brief depression prevention program for adolescents and young adults. He has evaluated it in four trials with high school and college students in Austin Texas and in Eugene Oregon. Participants who complete this prevention program have showed significant reductions in depressive symptoms and a 50% reduction in future depression onset over 2-3 year follow-ups relative to control participants. These effects compare or exceed those produced by more intensive depression prevention programs.
More than 20 interventions have been developed to prevent depression in adolescents and children, and more than 70 studies have evaluated their efficacy and effectiveness, with cognitive–behavioral (CB) prevention interventions for adolescents having the largest evidence base.
Dr. Eric Stice, a Tenured Professor from the University of Texas at Austin and Senior Research Scientist at the University of Texas at Austin and Oregon Research Institute will also be at CRHS on November 9th to provide a four hour training for teachers and clinicians that would be interested to learn how to deliver the cognitive behavioral depression prevention program developed by Dr. Stice, to groups of students. Trainees will be provided an intervention script that facilitates delivery to review. This is in addition to the evening talk that is open to ALL Katy ISD students and parents. If you have any questions, please email Sofia Peruzzi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
