The Child & Adolescent Mood Laboratory's work centers on understanding the ways in which cognitive, social, and biological factors interact in placing youth at risk for depression, and in developing evidence-based prevention and treatment programs for depression, anxiety
Our current work
The basic questions that our work seeks to address include:
How can we account for high rates of relapse after treatment of depression?
Are there biological, social or cognitive markers that can be used to identify youth who are most at risk for relapse?
How can we understand the very significant gender difference in relapse rates?
What social factors contribute to the development of maladaptive beliefs and vulnerability for depression among youth?
What are the neurological mechanisms by which CBT exerts its effects on mood?
Are there neurocognitive markers or predictors of response to treatment?
How can evidence-based approaches for treating depression and preventing suicide be disseminated to schools and communities?
