Chapter 7 of Family-based Interpersonal Psychotherapy (FB-IPT) for Depressed Preadolescents presents the third session of family-based interpersonal psychotherapy (FB-IPT), in which the therapist begins by orienting both the preadolescent and the parent to the structure of treatment. The therapist has already made the mood thermometer a part of the common language in the check-in and continues linking shifts in the preteen’s mood with particular interpersonal events. The therapist begins conducting the interpersonal inventory with the preadolescent and continues to do so in the next session. The therapist also has obtained information from the parent about the relationship with his or her child as well as the parental perspective about the preadolescent’s peer relationships. An understanding of how the preadolescent’s depression has affected the parent–child relationship provides a context for discussing Parent Tips in the next session.
