Unsupervised Classifications of Depression Levels Based on Machine Learning Algorithms Perform Well as Compared to Traditional Norm-Based Classifications

Evaluation of the integrated cognitive model of depression and its specificity in a migrant population
It is suggested that dysfunctional attitudes can be a common cognitive moderator of depression and anxiety, whereas automatic thoughts and anxious self‐statements can be specific cognitive mediators of anxiety and depression, respectively.

The ABCs of depression: integrating affective, biological, and cognitive models to explain the emergence of the gender difference in depression.
A model is proposed that integrates affective, biological, and cognitive factors as vulnerabilities to depression that heighten girls' rates of depression beginning in adolescence and account for the gender difference in depression.
Evaluation of cognitive diathesis-stress models in predicting major depressive disorder in adolescents.
Findings were suggestive of a threshold view of vulnerability to depression; for those who experienced negative life events, depressive onset was related to dysfunctional attitudes but only when dysfunctional attitudes exceeded a certain level.
An experimental test of the maintenance and vulnerability hypothesis of depression in consideration of the cognitive hierarchy
The results confirm the hypotheses concerning beliefs and thoughts, but adding emotions changes the levels of thoughts as well as emotions, which support the central role of beliefs in the development and maintenance of depressive symptoms.
The relationship between automatic thoughts and negative emotions in children and adolescents: a test of the cognitive content-specificity hypothesis.
Testing the cognitive content-specificity hypothesis in children and adolescents aged 7-16 years showed clear evidence of cognitive-affective specificity across both internalizing and externalizing problems in youth.
