Chapter 12 of Family-based Interpersonal Psychotherapy (FB-IPT) for Depressed Preadolescents presents the eighth session of family-based interpersonal therapy (FB-IPT), in which the therapist introduces the Tween Tip for how to “Make ‘I Feel’ Statements.” The therapist encourages the preadolescent and the parent to directly communicate feelings in response to situations related to the identified problem area. By expressing feelings, including softer feelings of sadness, worry, or disappointment, preadolescents can experience what it is like to let a parent or friend understand where she is coming from and possibly increase the support she experiences. Dyadic role-plays and home practice assignments increase uptake. Four Therapist Tips are provided.
