Chapter 19 of Family-based Interpersonal Psychotherapy (FB-IPT) for Depressed Preadolescents reviews the results of author-led trials that support family-based interpersonal psychotherapy (FB-IPT) as an efficacious psychotherapy for increasing remission from MDD and decreasing preadolescents’ comorbid anxiety and interpersonal impairment. This chapter also emphasizes that psychotherapy for preadolescents with depression presents an opportunity to reduce family and interpersonal risk factors that may increase the likelihood of recurrent depression in adolescence, and highlights FB-IPT as meeting a need for a developmentally appropriate treatment especially for preadolescents experiencing depression. Future directions for additional research and studies on implementing and disseminating FB-IPT to community-based agencies are also outlined.
