Wellesley College: Preventing Youth Depression in a Digital Age
May 10, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
As many as 13–20 percent of adolescents in the U.S. and other developed countries experience minor or major depressive episodes each year, according to Tracy Gladstone, Ph.D., a senior research scientist at the Wellesley Centers for Women (WCW). To address this problem, Gladstone developed a unique intervention, which she will discuss during the presentation, “Preventing Youth Depression in a Digital Age: An Internet-Based Approach,” on Thursday, May 10, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at Cheever House, 828 Washington St, Wellesley. This program was rescheduled from its original March 8date due to snow. It is part of the spring Lunchtime Seminar Series hosted by WCW, a program of Wellesley College.
Dr. Gladstone and her team have developed and evaluated a self-guided, internet-based primary care intervention, CATCH-IT, to target adolescents (ages 13-19) at risk for depressive illness. CATCH-IT incorporates character stories and graphic elements to meet current social media standards and combines therapeutic modalities (e.g., cognitive-behavioral and interpersonal interventions) in an ecological model.
The Lunchtime Seminar Series at WCW is free and open to the public. Most programs are held Thursdays, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. at the Centers’ Cheever House location (828 Washington St, Wellesley), and parking is available on site. Guests are invited to bring their lunches; WCW will provide tea and coffee. For accessibility questions, contact Disability Services at Wellesley College at [email protected]
