"Interpersonal psychotherapy is one of the most promising interventions for the treatment of depression, and one of the few that has empirical data to support its efficacy with adolescents. Mufson and colleagues provide an informative and succinct description of the steps involved in using IPT-A to treat depressed adolescents. Rich in theory and clinical detail, this is a valuable resource for anyone working with younger patients." - Steven D. Hollon, Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University, Tennessee, USA "I found this book to be well-organized and easy (actually fun) to read... The brief, focal nature of the therapy is very adaptable for work with adolescents in community settings." - Paulette Marie Gillig, Community Mental Health Journal
