Do Immediate Gains Predict Long-Term Symptom Change? Findings from a Randomized Trial of a Single-Session Intervention for Youth Anxiety and Depression
TLDR
Immediate shifts in proximal intervention “targets” may predict longer-term response to an SSI for youth internalizing distress, and larger immediate increases in primary control predicted steeper depressive symptoms declines across the follow-up. Expand
