Chapter 17 of Family-based Interpersonal Psychotherapy (FB-IPT) for Depressed Preadolescents presents the fourteenth (and last) session of family-based interpersonal therapy (FB-IPT), in which the preadolescent reviews with the therapist the ways in which the preadolescent has implemented new communication and problem-solving skills and how these skills could help in future situations. The therapist provides the preteen with the opportunity to explore his feelings about therapy termination. Together they review the preadolescent’s early warning signs and contract with the parent to regularly check-in with child after treatment ends. The therapist acknowledges the parent’s role in treatment and gives parent an opportunity to share her own feelings about ending therapy. Lastly, the therapist expresses appreciation to the parent-child dyad for their hard work. The therapist shares with the family that they may contact her at any time in the future with questions or concerns.
