Brief Summary:
There is an unmet treatment need for depressed adolescents with type 1 diabetes. To address this unmet need, we have designed a new, family-based, cognitive-behavioral intervention to reduce depressive symptoms, improve family functioning, and improve medication compliance. The intervention is delivered in two phases (1 - reduction of depressive symptoms and family conflict, 2 - adherence promotion) as efforts to improve adherence will have a greater likelihood of success if individual and family functioning variables are addressed first. To test the effectiveness of this intervention in reducing depressive symptoms and improving adherence, we will conduct a randomized controlled trial comparing this new intervention to usual care in a sample of fifty-two adolescents with type 1 diabetes and their primary caregivers. Given the absence of this type of intervention and the significance of the problem, this study is timely and important, as it has the potential to positively impact diabetes-specific health outcomes.
