Reviews

"Young and colleagues have built on the impressive evidence base for IPT treatment of adolescent depression to create a brief, empirically supported depression prevention program. The focus on interpersonal relations in the IPT model is intuitively appealing to many adolescents at risk for depression, which increases engagement. This well-written and practical book provides the reader with all she or he needs to deliver the intervention." --Paul Rohde, PhD, Senior Research Scientist, Oregon Research Institute "This stellar guide, written by the leaders in the field and the developers of IPT-AST, provides an insightful, clear rationale for the significance of the problem, treatment model, and then step-by-step instructions on how to implement interpersonal therapy skills to prevent adolescent depression. This volume is especially helpful as IPT-AST is grounded in theory, research, and years of clinical experience with adolescents... Helpful, detailed session outlines and important handouts alongside descriptive case vignettes provide the reader with clear examples of how IPT-AST can be implemented in an effective manner for clinicians of varying experience levels." --Benjamin L. Hankin, PhD, Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Denver "This thorough, go-to guide for conducting IPT-AST depression prevention sessions is a must-have reference for any mental health professionals who work with adolescents at risk for depression. I highly recommend this timely and important book for its significance to the field and for taking a bold new step in the direction of depression prevention for adolescents." -Doodys Health Science "a comprehensive manual that provides detailed information about the rationale for IPT-AST and a clear framework for administering the intervention. This manual will be of interest to a range of readers, including mental References health professionals, teachers, and school counselors." -- PsycCRITIQUES (February 2017) "Young and colleagues have built on the impressive evidence base for IPT treatment of adolescent depression to create a brief, empirically supported depression prevention program.
