Chapter 12 discusses the adaptation of IPT for depressed adolescents (IPT-A), and the hopes of building upon the research demonstrating its efficacy with depressed adults. It examines how the interpersonal model seemed appropriate for adolescents given their focus on interpersonal relationships and the significant developmental changes that occur in these relationships, such as separation and individuation from parents and increased focus on peer and romantic relationships. It also covers how IPT-A strategies help adolescents to bolster self-confidence and make steps toward increasing independence while also helping them to understand how they still depend on others and how they can negotiate their relationships more successfully.
