Novel Intervention Helps Kids Suffering From Depression And Anxiety

[Source: Medical News Today]
Children suffering from anxiety and depression could significantly benefit from a novel intervention called Emotion Detectives Treatment Protocol (EDTP), say researchers at the University of Miami. 
Anxiety affects around 8 to 22% of children and is often combined with other conditions, such as depression. According to the study, published online in the journal of Cognitive and Behavioral Practice, the severity of anxiety and depression significantly reduced among children who received treatment with EDTP.
The study was conducted by Jill Ehrenreich-May, assistant professor of psychology in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Miami and her colleague Emily L. Bilek.
Ehrenreich-May, explained:   “We are very excited about the potential of EDTP. Not only could the protocol better address the needs of youth with commonly co-occurring disorders and symptoms, it may also provide additional benefits to mental health professionals. EDTP offers a more unified approach to treatment which, we hope, will allow for an efficient and cost-effective treatment option for clinicians and clients alike.”
