Questions:

7. According to Stanard’s article, what may be an effective treatment for depressed adolescents?
8. According to Portes, what may reduce the gap between males and females in suicide rates in the future?
9. Although for many years there has been an assumed connection between suicide and psychosis, resulting in the practice of placing adolescents who attempted suicide in hospital psychiatric wards for observation or treatment, what did Manor’s article note about this treatment approach?
Answers:
A.  Manor’s article noted a lack of empirical justification for placing adolescents who attempted suicide in hospital psychiatric wards. Suicidal behavior, even when the victim died, had not occurred on the basis of classified psychiatric illness, but rather on the basis of personality disorders.
B.  Changes in gender roles may reduce the gap between males and females in suicide rates, as women are increasingly encouraged to take on more male-oriented characteristics.
C.  Diagnosis of depression in adolescents can be difficult due to problems differentiating between the normal, transient difficulties and developmental issues that occur in this age group and depressive symptoms.
D. Stanard’s article indicated that cognitive behavioral treatment, both individual and group, may be effective for depressed adolescents. An NIMH-supported study on treatment of adolescent depression found a 65% remission rate and a more rapid treatment response using cognitive behavioral treatment as opposed to either supportive or family treatment.
