Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) is a highly collaborative model that posits that by developing good, meaningful, constructive relationships, you will reduce depressive symptoms.

The model has also been adapted for clients experiencing PTSD – without exposure, Eating Disorders, depression concurrent with medical illnesses, etc.

This workshop will provide a thorough training of IPT, using video case examples, practice of IPT strategies with feedback from instructors, and personal clinical case examples. This session will provide attendees with the ability to implement IPT practices with various client populations.
