How Effective Is Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) For The Treatment Of Bipolar Disorder In Children?

Question: How effective is interpersonal therapy (IPT) for the treatment of bipolar disorder in children/adolescents?

Answer: Well interpersonal therapy hasn't been tested to the same degree as cognitive behavioral therapy in young people. However anybody who's been around young people know that interpersonal relationships with peers, with their family are terribly important and part of normal development.

So although it's not been tested, this is another form of intervention that needs to be explored in much more detail than it has. Moreover, in routine clinical practice, interpersonal issues that are sometimes addressed in this form of psychotherapy are always a key component of any treatment plan.
