Effectiveness of cognitive behaviour therapy in schoolchildren with depressive symptoms in Alexandria, Egypt
AbstractWe evaluated the effectiveness of cognitive behaviour therapy for 12-14-year-old schoolchildren from a low socioeconomic area in Alexandria, Egypt during the academic year 2003-04. Our sample comprised 198 boys and 136 girls. Students were assessed using the Child Depression Inventory and the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory. The frequency of depression was 9.6%; 7.1% in boys and 13.2% in girls. The 32 children with depression were offered cognitive behaviour therapy. Only 17 accepted the offer and received 9 sessions of therapy. They were assessed 3 months after the intervention using the same tools and the results indicate the short-term effectiveness of the therapy
