Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) is an empirically validated treatment for mood disorders, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and PTSD, and can be used transdiagnostically to provide effective treatment to a wide variety of clients. IPT is recognized as an evidence-based treatment by Australia’s Medicare Better Access Initiative, as well as by the American Psychological Association.
IPT is a time-limited treatment which includes provision for maintenance treatment for clients that need longer-term care. It is based on attachment and interpersonal theory, and emphasizes that a client’s relationships impact the client’s experience of distress, and that the client’s distress also impacts those around them. IPT utilizes a Biopsychosocial/Cultural/Spiritual model which recognizes the specific influences of culture and spirituality on distress and community.
Workshop participants will learn the basics of IPT for general use and will be fully equipped to conduct IPT at the end of the course. This IPT Level A is open to all interested clinicians at any level of training. We suggest Interpersonal Psychotherapy: A Clinician’s Guide (2nd Edition) as reading prior to the training. The course includes an overview of IPT theory but is primarily focused on learning and mastering the direct clinical application of IPT using interactive exercises as well as video reviews and discussions of IPT sessions, techniques and strategies.
All participants will receive a Level A certificate upon completion of the course.
All participants will also be eligible to continue with IPT supervision and certification if desired.
All class sessions will be in four hour blocks from 10 AM to 2 PM Central Standard Time (Chicago). Please be SURE that you have the correct time for your home location when you register.
