In recent years, several new adaptations of interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) have appeared in the psychiatric literature. Designed for both clinicians and researchers, New Applications of Interpersonal Psychotherapy presents these latest adaptations and their applications for a variety of disorders, including depression, bulimia, substance use, and addiction.

Section One includes background concepts of IPT and recent advances in the understanding of epidemiology, genetics, and treatment of depression. Section Two covers new adaptations of IPT for depression, including maintenance for recurrent depression, conjoint IPT for depressed patients with marital disputes, and IPT for the treatment of depressed adolescents, elderly patients, depressed HIV-seropositive patients, dysthymic patients, and depressed medical patients in primary care. Section Three describes the extension of IPT to other disorders, including a simpler counseling for stress.
