Description

Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) is an evidence-based treatment for clients with a diagnosis of depression. This two-day webinar will focus on introducing practitioners to IPT. We will focus specifically on how to conduct IPT with depressed clients including the therapeutic role, techniques, and common issues. We will also review adaptations of interpersonal psychotherapy for both mood and non-mood disorders. Discussion of the use of IPT across cultures and adaptations for the use of IPT in group, conjoint, and telephone formats will be explored. A review of the epidemiology and diagnosis of depression will be provided, but will not be the focal point of the workshop. This workshop will focus primarily on using the treatment with adult clients, but will include some examples with adolescents.
