This paper provides the framework for assessing and treating chronically depressed, multiproblem children. A clinical case study was chosen as the vehicle to illustrate, in a sequential manner, an approach which utilizes intensive milieu interventions, dynamically oriented psychotherapy, antidepressant medication, and behavior therapy (social skills training) to convey the rationale and methodology for a pragmatic, comprehensive, multimodal approach to the therapy of chronically depressed children.
