Abstract

Interpersonal psychotherapy for adolescents (IPT-A) is a short-termtreatment for adolescents with major depression. Unlike most supportive,expressive forms of psychotherapy that are often used to treat depressedadolescents and are not standardised, IPT-A has a treatment manual available (Mufson et al., 1993) and specific training is required for thetherapist. Unfortunately, there is no training centre yet in the U.K., although several groups, including ours, are developing expertise in IPT-A. Thispaper discusses the role of IPT-A, outlines the structure of sessions, and offers an analysis of the differences between this and other therapies.
