Chapter 18 of Family-based Interpersonal Psychotherapy (FB-IPT) for Depressed Preadolescents illustrates how to manage certain clinical challenges that are unique to working with preadolescents and when working dyadically with their families. The clinical issues discussed in this chapter include school avoidance, therapy noncompliance, identification of comorbid diagnoses during treatment, suicidality, divorce and custody issues, multiple caregiver involvement in treatment, and parental psychopathology. We will define each challenge and discuss specific adaptations that can be made to address these challenges within the framework of FB-IPT. We will also discuss times when FB-IPT is no longer appropriate and when a preadolescent should be referred to a higher level of care or a different clinical service.
