Abstract

In recent years, Macedonian psychologists and psychiatrists at Goce Delcev University, in the city of Stip, have initiated several innovative research projects. Developmental psychopathology, especially in clinical settings, provides a leading paradigm for research and treatment of depression in adolescence. The theoretical and empirical research discussed in this paper has been successfully implemented during recent years. We believe that the current study, among the first from the Republic of Macedonia, adds to the knowledge base regarding the cognitive vulnerability of adolescents. It enhances the developmental psychopathological perspective by elucidating the phenomenon of subclinical depression in adolescence. Prevention of depression in adolescence increasingly requires a shift of the paradigm from traditional models of disease in which symptoms are treated when they occur, to a proactive focus on mental health and to maximizing protective factors and reducing risk factors for mental diseases (National Research Council and Institute of Medicine, 2009).
