IPT Training Videos
#1 IPT For Postpartum Depression
IPT for Postpartum Depression is the first of the series of IPT training videos now available through the IPT Institute. It includes a review of IPT along with demonstration of the initial, middle, and concluding phases of treatment. The video can be played with commentary or simply as an uninterrupted review of the sessions.
IPT Quality and Adherence Scale
The IPT Quality and Adherence Scale is available for free to all clinicians. The scale was developed with funding from a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health, and is reliable and fully validated. Higher scores on the IPT Quality and Adherence Scale are correlated with better psychotherapy outcomes, and there is high correlation between supervisor and therapist self-ratings on the items included in the Scale.
The IPT Quality and Adherence Scale can be used in research settings as well as community clinical settings. IPT therapists and supervisors can use it as a guide to conducting IPT. The Scale is used to rate portfolios in all of the IPT certification programs.
An electronic version of the IPT Quality and Adherence Scale is also available– please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in accessing the electronic version.
PHQ-9 and GAD-7
The PHQ-9 (depression) and GAD-7 (anxiety) are short, reliable, and validated measures that can be used with IPT patients. We recommend using them at the beginning of treatment and every 4 sessions thereafter. They are required for use with IPT portfolios.
