Chapter 15 of Family-based Interpersonal Psychotherapy (FB-IPT) for Depressed Preadolescents introduces the termination phase of treatment, in which the therapist prepares the preadolescent and parent for the completion of family-based interpersonal psychotherapy (FB-IPT). In Session 12, the therapist continues to support the preadolescent’s practice of interpersonal skills and begins to review with the preadolescent and the parent the progress the preadolescent has made in treatment. There is continued emphasis on the link between improvement in the preadolescent’s depressive symptoms and the preadolescent’s use of communication and problem-solving skills. With both the preadolescent and the parent, the therapist begins to talk about the process of terminating this course of FB-IPT and next steps for the preadolescent, which may be ending outpatient therapy, referral to a maintenance group or individual maintenance therapy, or more intensive treatment, depending on the preadolescent’s degree of improvement and severity of residual depressive symptoms.
