Utilizing the elements described in the previous chapters, this one applies the IPT approach to patients with major depressive disorder in the setting of the Covid-19 pandemic. Major depression is a common sequela of disaster. Major depression is also the disorder for which IPT was first tested and has been most frequently evaluated, and for which it is considered a first line, practice guideline-recommended treatment. Four extended, detailed Covid-19 related case examples cover the three focal IPT problem areas of grief (complicated bereavement), role dispute, and role transition. These cases also underscore the importance of cultural issues in personalizing IPT to the treatment of individuals.
