Psychological interventions for children and young people with internalising disorders:- For children and young people with learning disabilities, what psychological interventions (such as cognitive behavioural therapy and interpersonal therapy) are clinically and cost effective for treating internalising disorders?
- Any explanatory notes
Why this is important:- There is some evidence for the use of psychological interventions for internalising disorders in children and young people within the general population, and in adults with learning disabilities. However no evidence was found to indicate which interventions for internalising disorders are effective in children and young people with learning disabilities, or what adaptations are most helpful.
Psychological interventions commonly used within the general population (such as cognitive behavioural therapy and interpersonal therapy) should be adapted and tested in large randomised controlled trials. This research is crucial to improving the mental health outcomes in this population, and would have a significant impact upon updates of this guideline.
Important outcomes could include:
- effect on the mental health problem
- cost effectiveness
- health-related quality of life.
