What is Interpersonal Psychotherapy?

Posted on September 3, 2013 in -

Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) is a supportive approach that aims to clarify and resolve interpersonal difficulties (eg, role disputes, social isolation, prolonged grief reaction, role transition, etc.). Therefore, the underlying assumption with interpersonal therapy is that the presenting issue (eg: depression) and interpersonal problems are interrelated.

Your psychologist works with you to identify specific live events and interpersonal issues related to the onset and continuation of their problems in order to demonstrate the connection between your mood and current situation.
