Chapter 14 of Family-based Interpersonal Psychotherapy (FB-IPT) for Depressed Preadolescents presents the tenth and eleventh sessions of family-based interpersonal therapy (FB-IPT), in which the therapist introduces interpersonal approach strategies to help socially isolated or avoidant preadolescents increase their interactions peers. Working collaboratively with the preadolescent, the therapist helps identify peers and situations where the preadolescent could initiate a brief interaction and scripts examples of saying hello, asking a question, or giving a compliment. After role-playing, the therapist encourages the preteen to implement this approach in the upcoming week as an “interpersonal experiment,”, with the hope that more frequent initiation with peers will result in more positive moods. The therapist enlists the parent as support for the preadolescent in completing the interpersonal experiment.
