Abstract

Children living with a parent with a depressive disorder are at higher risk for low adaptive functioning, in terms of social, academic, emotional, and mental health problems (Reupert, Maybery & Kowalenko, 2012).This brief describes FAMILLE+, a multifamily group program for parents with major depressive disorder and their 7 to 11 years old children. Its purpose is to prevent the development of mental health problems in children and to promote family resilience and was specifically adapted to fit the children's developmental (cognitive, attentional and socio-emotional) abilities.
