Family Meetings

No research of which we are aware compares CT with one or two family meetings to CT alone. Group Individual Family Therapy for Depression (GIFT; Friedman et al., 2005) involves 10-14 sessions of cognitive-behavioral group therapy, as well as three individual sessions and two family meetings used primarily for assessment and psychoeducation purposes. Data from an open trial of GIFT indicate that the pre- to posttreatment effect size is similar to that seen with other group treatments for depression. Similarly, CT interventions for adolescents have involved a few conjoint family sessions and/or psychoeducation for parents (Treatment for Adolescents with Depression Study [TADS] Team, 2004).
