This article reviews the empirical literature on the comorbidity of depression and conduct disorder in adolescence, and hypothesized mechanisms for understanding this overlap. Cognitive behavioral models of conduct disorder and depression are briefly reviewed, and points of convergence are discussed. Components of an integrated treatment program are presented. Treatment of comorbid adolescents requires an individualized case formulation and attention to the developmental level of the adolescent.
