It’s all about relationships: The Fundamentals of Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Depressed Adolescents

Presenter: Laura Mufson, Ph.D. is a Professor of Medical Psychology and Associate Director of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, Co-Director of the Office of Clinical Psychology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and Director of Clinical Psychology at New York State Psychiatric Institute. In addition, she is Director of Training for the Child Track of the APA Accredited Predoctoral Internship in Clinical Psychology. Dr. Mufson is the developer of the adolescent adaptation of Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Depression (IPT-A) and has been a principal investigator, co-investigator and/or consultant with colleagues on numerous grants establishing the efficacy of IPT-A, studying adaptations of IPT-A to be delivered in schools, primary care and community clinics, as well as collaborating on studies on prevention of depression and the treatment of preadolescent depression. She has published numerous articles, book chapters, and books on IPT-A and its adaptations, and has conducted training workshops on IPT-A throughout the United States and internationally.

Webinar Summary: Interpersonal Therapy for Depressed Adolescents (IPT-A) has been demonstrated to be an efficacious treatment for adolescent depression (Mufson, Weissman, Moreau, & Garfinkel, 1999; Mufson, Dorta, Wickramaratne, Nomura, Olfson, & Weissman, 2004; Rosselló & Bernal, 1999) and is delineated in a published treatment manual (Mufson, Dorta, Moreau, & Weissman, 2004). IPT-A was adapted from the adult model of IPT and similarly is based on the premise that depression, regardless of its etiology, occurs in an interpersonal context. IPT-A is a 12-15 session treatment that focuses on improving depressive symptoms and interpersonal functioning. IPT-A meets the criteria of a “well-established treatment” for adolescent depression according to the American Psychological Association Task Force on the Promotion and Dissemination of Psychological Procedures as well as other systematic reviews (David- Ferdon & Kaslow, 2009; Weersing et al., 2017). Most importantly, IPT-A is one of a few evidence-based psychotherapies that has been transported and implemented in community settings with demonstrated effectiveness when delivered by community therapists. IPT-A is considered to be an effective, evidence-based treatment for adolescent depression by the Society of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (http://effectivechildtherapy.com/content/depression). This presentation will provide participants with an overview of IPT-A and discussion of key IPT-A techniques and their implementation with diverse populations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the basic principles of Interpersonal Psychotherapy for depression
  • Understand the modifications for working with an adolescent population.
  • Understand the key IPT-A techniques including the teen tips, communication analysis, and developing interpersonal experiments to master new skills.

October 23, 2019 12 - 1 PM ET
Memory Processes, Therapy, and You: Transdiagnostic Perspectives on Maximizing Therapeutic Learning

Presenter:  Michael W. Otto, Ph.D. is Professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and Senior Fellow in the Institute for Health System Innovation and Policy Director at Boston University. He has had a major career focus on developing and validating new psychosocial treatments, with a focus on treatment refractory populations including those with bipolar, anxiety, and substance use disorders. His work includes a translational research agenda investigating brain-behavior relationships in therapeutic learning, including the use of novel strategies (e.g., d-cycloserine, yohimbine) to improve the consolidation of therapeutic learning. Dr. Otto’s focus on hard-to-treat conditions and principles underlying behavior-change failures led him to an additional focus on health-behavior promotion, including investigations of addictive behaviors, medication adherence, sleep, and exercise. Across these behaviors, he has been concerned with cognitive, attention, and affective factors that derail adaptive behaviors. Dr. Otto has published over 400 articles and over 20 books spanning his research interests, and he was identified as a “top producer” in the clinical empirical literature as well as an ISI Highly Cited Researcher. His leadership positions include serving as Past President of the Association of Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies, and immediate Past President of Division 12 of the American Psychological Association.

Overview: The way in which new learning is integrated into existing memory structures has rich clinical relevance because, regardless of theoretical orientation, psychotherapy is concerned with modification of the influence of an individual’s personal history on his or her current functioning. In short, frequently a goal of therapy is to modify the degree to which individuals are emotionally or behaviorally shackled by their own learning histories.  Accordingly, this talk provides a clinically-rich perspective on the nature of memory adaptation and accommodation in relation to therapeutic interventions, with the goal of enhancing clinical attention to helping patients better retain and use the valuable moments of change in psychotherapy.  Elements of this presentation will include an update on pharmacologic and behavioral strategies for enhancing extinction learning from exposure, as well as focused reminders to task other memory enhancing strategies—e.g., cues, exercise, sleep—for enhancing learning in therapy.

Learning Objectives:

  • Know concepts associated with memory reconsolidation.
  • Know the strength and reliability of post-reconsolidation extinction effects in human de novo fear conditioning studies.
  • Be aware of common strategies for enhancing memory for session material, including the influence of sleep and exercise.
  • Be able to select and apply strategies to enhance therapeutic learning in psychotherapy.
