Assessments for these disorders in young people typically include clinician-administered instruments such as diagnostic interviews and parent- and youth-report questionnaires. Cognitive behavioral therapy is considered a well-established treatment for both anxiety and depression. Latest research in the field is exploring innovative methods to enhance treatment outcome and improve access to evidence-based treatments.
