Project Title: A brief early intervention for adolescent depression that targets emotional memories: a feasibility randomised controlled trial 

This project aims to develop a brief easy-to-access psychological intervention for adolescents with depression that can be delivered in schools. This intervention will combine key components of current evidence-based practice in adults to (1) reduce the emotional power of memories from past distressing experiences and (2) improve mood, build hope and enhance engagement in important activities, through increasing the ability to recall positive memories and imagine future positive events. The primary outcome will be feasibility data (e.g. time taken to recruit participants and participant feedback on intervention acceptability) and initial data on changes in symptoms of depression.
