Little Treatments, Big Effects? Building Brief Interventions to Reduce Youth Psychopathology at Scale, 1.5 CE

Presented by Jessica Schleider, Ph.D.

Hundreds of psychosocial interventions have been identified as effective in reducing youth psychological problems, yet up to 80% of youths with mental health needs go without services each year. Existing youth therapies are often costly, time-intensive, and designed for delivery by highly trained professionals, limiting access for large swaths of the population. This talk will overview recent innovations on evidence-based single-session youth mental health interventions—which can help augment and extend existing mental health care infrastructure—including the research supporting their utility and strategies for implementing them in diverse clinical and community settings. Skill Level: Beginning

Workshop Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify and implement components of SSIs that may help reduce youth internalizing symptoms and improve parents’ likelihood of pursuing mental health treatment for offspring.
  • Utilize strategies for evaluating the effectiveness of SSIs implemented in clinical and/or research settings
  • Describe advances in research on single-session interventions (SSIs) for youth mental health problems, including characteristics of effective SSIs that have shown positive effects.
