Reflecting the new and exciting trends in psychotherapy as well as responsive to the current emphasis on efficient, substantial therapeutic results, this book presents a model of interpersonal, short_term psychotherapy for clinically depressed patients. Gerald L. Klerman, whose research on depression has made him world renowned, and Myrna M. Weissman, who has written, with Eugene Paykel, an important book on women and depression, have worked with their colleagues to present the empirical basis for their new treatment method. This theory builds on the heritage of Harry Stack Sullivan and John Bowlby and their focus on interpersonal issues and attachment on depression. Research shows that four categories of interpersonal difficulties predominate: grief, interpersonal disputes, role transitions. and interpersonal deficits. In this approach, the therapist focuses on the patient's primary problems and evaluates the need for medication in addition to interpersonal therapy. Acknowledging that these four areas are never mutually exclusive, the authors present a clear treatment strategy for each, augmenting their presentation with a discussion of common obstacles that arise during treatment. As an overview, the book compares interpersonal psychotherapy with other psychotherapies for depression. Summaries of research documenting the efficacy of interpersonal psychotherapy are given.The authors outline the theoretical basis for an interpersonal approach, and apply it to depression. The following sections detail how to conduct interpersonal psychotherapy, supplying case vignettes to illustrate particular problems. Finally, the authors explore combining interpersonal psychotherapy with pharmacotherapy.

Depression is always a serious disorder. It is especially troubling when it affects adolescents: It can impair a teenager's ability to function at school, with family members, and with friends during the life stage when establishing and maintaining relationships are of paramount importance. Adolescent depression can result in lifelong emotional, social, and interpersonal difficulties or even suicidal behavior. While the management of depression is often a major component in the practice of mental health treatments with adolescents, until now no treatment method has focused primarily on interpersonal relationships. Breaking new ground in the literature on the subject, this volume is the first to present a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to interpersonal psychotherapy for depressed adolescents (IPT-A). Proven effective in managing adult depression, IPT was recently modified into a time-limited (12-week-long) program designed for younger outpatients experiencing nonpsychotic, nonbipolar depression. To improve the patient's overall social networks, the IPT-A program involves the affected teenager as well as his or her parents. The treatment focuses on the problem areas of grief, interpersonal role disputes, role transitions, interpersonal deficits, and on single-parent families. The volume reviews the epidemiology, assessment, and diagnosis of depression in children and adolescents, and then guides the reader through each phase of treatment. Strategies, goals, and implementation methods are covered for each individual session; clinical vignettes and therapist scripts throughout offer clear illustrations of the techniques discussed. Final chapters cover the special issues clinicians are confronted with when working with adolescent patients, including refusal to go to school, sexual activity, aggressive behavior, sexual abuse, and life in a non-nuclear family. Also discussed are day-to-day clinical issues such as how to handle missed appointments and parental interference. With depression rates soaring among younger members of the population, this text could not be more timely. The practical, effective treatment program detailed in this volume will be invaluable to all mental health professionals who work with adolescents. It is also an important addition to courses on adolescent psychiatry, psychology, and social work.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) is a brief treatment approach that has demonstrated effectiveness for treatment of major depressive disorders in adults. IPT takes the position that although there are many causes for depression, understanding the current social and interpersonal circumstances of the client associated with the onset of a recent episode of depression will expedite understanding current symptoms and help the client move toward developing new ways of coping. The books in this program clearly define the focus of treatment as "here and now."

Depression is a recurrent, debilitating and sometimes fatal disorder that may first effect children between the ages of 9 and 12. Preadolescent depression is an important public health concern because it is a "gateway" condition that increases the risk for recurrent depression into adolescence and adulthood, particularly when there is a strong family history of mood disorders. The preadolescent period presents a window of opportunity for early psychosocial intervention for depressive disorders and for decreasing risk factors associated with recurrence, namely difficulties in relationships with family members and friends. Addressing and treating depressive disorders in preadolescents has the potential to be extremely successful given the dramatic increase in rates of depression that occur in adolescence. Family-Based Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Depressed Preadolescents is a psychosocial intervention that aims to reduce depressive and anxiety symptoms among preadolescents and to provide them with skills to improve interpersonal relationships. Parents are systematically involved in all stages of the preteen's treatment to provide support and model positive communication and problem solving skills. The Initial Phase of treatment addresses psychoeducation about preadolescent depression, challenges in parenting a depressed preadolescent, and appropriate expectations for their child's behavior and performance at this time. The Middle Phase of treatment outlines ways for clinicians to present FB-IPT skills to both the preteen and parent. The Termination Phase focuses on consolidating skills, addressing prevention strategies, and identifying when to seek treatment for recurrent depression.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Cognitive Impairment (IPT-ci) aims to improve coping skills of older adults. It builds on traditional Interpersonal Psychotherapy, an evidence-based treatment that has been found useful in treating depressed elders. Cognitive impairment, a common occurrence in the older population due to disease or age-related causes of changes in brain function, calls for additional strategies to optimize functioning. IPT-ci seeks to help older patients and their caregivers manage the effects of cognitive impairment, particularly in the early phase when behavior changes are often misunderstood, as well as to plan for potential future declines in cognitive functioning. Part I offers an overview of IPT principles and the development of IPT-ci, as well as essential background information for those new to the field of clinical geriatrics. Chapters on late-life depression, cognitive impairment/dementia, and executive function provide key points of reference for working with this population. Part II demonstrates the IPT-ci approach from the initial interview through long-term follow up. Special attention is paid to the role of concerned family members or caregivers and the role transition they are going through becoming caregivers. This guide is replete with case examples, numbered for easy reference and representing a range of patients and issues. Detailed analysis clarifies the application of IPT-ci elements. Clinicians will find this guide a practical resource for treating older patients and assisting their caregivers from the first visit to lifelong management.
