 Course Description:  Sleep problems have been linked to anxiety and depression in adolescence, but the relationships among these variables are not fully understood. In the present study, researchers obtained self-report data on sleep habits from 15-year-olds with diagnoses of anxiety and/or depression. Analyses focused on sleep quality (e.g., time to fall asleep, difficulty waking up, and daytime sleepiness) as well as sleep patterns (e.g., sleep onset time and total sleep). The researchers found that adolescents with anxiety reported difficulties involving sleep quality, while adolescents with depression reported difficulties involving sleep quality as well as sleep patterns. Three aspects of sleep quality (night waking, daytime sleepiness, and perceptions of insufficient sleep) predicted diagnoses of anxiety and depression at ages 17 and 24, and one sleep pattern (later sleep onset time on school nights) predicted diagnoses of anxiety at age 24. Comparable findings were obtained for predictions of anxiety and depression symptomatology at age 21. The results of the study suggest that management of adolescent sleep quality and sleep patterns can play a role in preventing the development of anxiety and depression.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the rationale for the study as well as the longitudinal approach to gathering data from adolescents at four time points
  2. Describe the main findings of the study with respect to sleep quality and sleep patterns
  3. Integrate the strengths and limitations of the study, and summarize the clinical implications for supporting positive sleep habits among adolescents

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Self-reported sleep patterns and quality amongst adolescents: Cross-sectional and prospective associations with anxiety and depression
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Understand the rationale for examining whether adolescents with anxiety and/or depression experience sleep problems, and whether sleep problems predict later anxiety and/or depression
  • Understand how sleep quality and sleep patterns were measured at ages 15, 17, and 24
  • Understand how anxiety and depression diagnoses were obtained at ages 15, 17, and 24, and how anxiety and depression symptoms were measured at age 21
  • Analyze how sleep quality and sleep patterns measured at age 15 predicted later anxiety- and depression-related outcomes
  • Integrate the study's key findings, strengths, limitations, and clinical implications
  • Work through the post-test questions, using the article as the sole basis for your answers

Revisit the article for any missed questions and/or to better understand the role of adolescent sleep habits in the development of anxiety and depression
