Although it is clear that adolescent mood disorders exist and lead to significant immediate and lifelong impairment for the child, there exists limited treatment research in this special population. This has led clinicians to consult with the adult literature to provide guidance in their treatment approaches. In fact, the adult research studies have provided the template for the present interventions being explored in adolescent treatment studies. To appreciate how the adult literature informs the field of adolescent mood disorder treatments, the current status of the adult literature for both psychosocial and psychopharmacologic treatments will be reviewed. This will be followed by an appraisal of the same treatment areas for adolescents.
