Learn Interpersonal Psychotherapy
Evidence-supported IPT training for clinicians. Expanding access to psychotherapy treatment for patients.
Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) is a structured, time-limited, evidence-supported form of psychotherapy treatment for depression and other psychiatric disorders. With a focus on relationships, which are essential for our survival, health and well-being, development, and resilience, the goals of IPT are to relieve symptoms, improve interpersonal functioning and connection with supportive others. IPT has been effective across individual and group therapy settings, diverse clinical populations and cultures, and the patient lifespan including in adolescence, the perinatal period and late life.
What is Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)?
Our programs provide participants with a foundational understanding of IPT for depression treatment, relational theories including attachment and mentalizing, and necessary therapeutic skills to help patients to improve their interpersonal effectiveness, and to cope with interpersonal losses, changes, and/or conflicts.
