This volume outlines a residential interpersonal psychotherapy program for the treatment of social phobia, which was developed from a research project comparing the program with cognitive therapy. The program, which took place in a tertiary care residential setting new Oslo, Norway, focused on patients with more chronic and severe social phobia and was extended to include those with severe or recurrent depression. The authors explain the interpersonal model, basic principles for its use with social phobia, the treatment setting for the program, use of individual and group therapy, and sessions. They also detail the program's origins in a group that was part of a study that used treatment for avoidant personality disorder with integrated challenges related to hiking activities. The final chapter briefly evaluates the program. The authors, from Norway and the US, are psychologists, a social worker, an occupational therapist, a psychiatric nurse, and psychiatrists.
