The Clinician's Quick Guide to Interpersonal Psychotherapy is a practical guide for busy clinicians who want to learn Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT). Initially developed as a treatment for major depression, IPT has proven highly effective as a therapy for a number of other disorders. IPT can be combined with medication, and it is a safe alternative to medication for those individuals who may not be able to take antidepressants. IPT has been shown not only to relieve symptoms but to build social skills as well. Learn how to use IPT to effectively treat depression, as well as other disorders including bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and borderline personality disorder. Written by the originators of the treatment, this practical book describes how to approach clinical encounters with patients, how to focus IPT treatment, and ways to handle therapeutic difficulties. The book updates research findings on IPT and addresses its adaptation to different cultures. Complete with clinical examples and sample therapist scripts throughout, this guide foregoes the theoretical and empirical background of IPT, and focuses on teaching you the best way to deliver this effective, time-limited, diagnostically focused, and immensely practical treatment.

A quick-reference, multi-media guide to using interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) to treat depression. Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) is an evidence-supported, short-term therapy that focuses on universal life problems involving change, loss, and conflict in relationships, particularly when these problems relate to depression. At its heart is an emphasis on relationships as a healing force during stressful life events. This guide walks readers through the core principles of IPT treatment—how to consider underlying psychological and biological factors that may predispose a client to depression, including insecure attachment; how to effectively communicate with clients to improve their relationship problems; and how to conduct “interpersonal inventories” to help clients connect to a support system that may be helpful in their recovery process. Included in this comprehensive guide are a DVD of sample therapy sessions and clinical explication that describe how to implement the protocol, as well as a laminated pocket reminder card. An on-the-go package of practical tools that busy clinicians won’t want to be without. Please note that the ebook version of this title does not include the DVD.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Cognitive Impairment (IPT-ci) aims to improve coping skills of older adults. It builds on traditional Interpersonal Psychotherapy, an evidence-based treatment that has been found useful in treating depressed elders. Cognitive impairment, a common occurrence in the older population due to disease or age-related causes of changes in brain function, calls for additional strategies to optimize functioning. IPT-ci seeks to help older patients and their caregivers manage the effects of cognitive impairment, particularly in the early phase when behavior changes are often misunderstood, as well as to plan for potential future declines in cognitive functioning. Part I offers an overview of IPT principles and the development of IPT-ci, as well as essential background information for those new to the field of clinical geriatrics. Chapters on late-life depression, cognitive impairment/dementia, and executive function provide key points of reference for working with this population. Part II demonstrates the IPT-ci approach from the initial interview through long-term follow up. Special attention is paid to the role of concerned family members or caregivers and the role transition they are going through becoming caregivers. This guide is replete with case examples, numbered for easy reference and representing a range of patients and issues. Detailed analysis clarifies the application of IPT-ci elements. Clinicians will find this guide a practical resource for treating older patients and assisting their caregivers from the first visit to lifelong management.

Depression is always a serious disorder. It is especially troubling when it affects adolescents: It can impair a teenager's ability to function at school, with family members, and with friends during the life stage when establishing and maintaining relationships are of paramount importance. Adolescent depression can result in lifelong emotional, social, and interpersonal difficulties or even suicidal behavior. While the management of depression is often a major component in the practice of mental health treatments with adolescents, until now no treatment method has focused primarily on interpersonal relationships. Breaking new ground in the literature on the subject, this volume is the first to present a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to interpersonal psychotherapy for depressed adolescents (IPT-A). Proven effective in managing adult depression, IPT was recently modified into a time-limited (12-week-long) program designed for younger outpatients experiencing nonpsychotic, nonbipolar depression. To improve the patient's overall social networks, the IPT-A program involves the affected teenager as well as his or her parents. The treatment focuses on the problem areas of grief, interpersonal role disputes, role transitions, interpersonal deficits, and on single-parent families. The volume reviews the epidemiology, assessment, and diagnosis of depression in children and adolescents, and then guides the reader through each phase of treatment. Strategies, goals, and implementation methods are covered for each individual session; clinical vignettes and therapist scripts throughout offer clear illustrations of the techniques discussed. Final chapters cover the special issues clinicians are confronted with when working with adolescent patients, including refusal to go to school, sexual activity, aggressive behavior, sexual abuse, and life in a non-nuclear family. Also discussed are day-to-day clinical issues such as how to handle missed appointments and parental interference. With depression rates soaring among younger members of the population, this text could not be more timely. The practical, effective treatment program detailed in this volume will be invaluable to all mental health professionals who work with adolescents. It is also an important addition to courses on adolescent psychiatry, psychology, and social work.
