2062: Practical strategies for providing an evidence-based therapy, COPE (CBT -skills building therapy),to depressed adolescents in primary care, community, and mental health settings

Practical strategies are described for presenting COPE, a cbt skill-based therapy in primary care, community and mental health settings.
