Family-Based Interpersonal Psychotherapy (FB-IPT)

FB-IPT is a treatment for childhood depression based on Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), a psychological treatment that has been shown to be effective in caring for depression in adults and adolescents. IPT is a type of ‘talk’ therapy that relates depression to difficulties in personal relationships due to loss, conflict, or transitions in life circumstances. FB-IPT therapists work with the child to understand the relationship between interpersonal relationships and depression and to learn better communication and problem-solving skills to improve their relationships.  In addition, parents participate in their child’s FB-IPT sessions.
