After discussing the characteristics of dysthymic disorder, the basic principles of IPT, and the available treatment data, this volume offers clear, coherent treatment strategies for working with this potentially difficult, yet treatable, disorder. A useful adjunct to training and supervision by certified clinicians, this book contains numerous case examples that vividly illustrate how to use this treatment approach.

Review quote

This excellent book will urge an expanded repertoire on the experienced psychiatrist and provide trainees and less experienced therapists with an introduction to interpersonal therapy. * American Journal of Psychiatry * [T]his book provides a useful addition to the armamentarium of any psychotherapist dealing with this historically difficult-to-treat disorder. This is particularly important in this era of managed care, which places such a heavy emphasis on clear-cut goals for time-limited treatments. * Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic *show more
