INTERPERSONAL PSYCHOTHERAPY TRAINING
Participants will learn the basics of IPT and be fully equipped to conduct IPT at the end of the course. 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. All participants will receive a Level A certificate upon completion of the course.
The Level A course is designed to instruct participants in the theory and practice of IPT. This course also emphasizes the use of IPT with perinatal women and their families. All participants should be able to conduct IPT at the completion of this 2-day course.
The course consists of didactic presentations and a review of the research supporting IPT followed by a multimedia presentation describing the use of IPT with clients. The course includes review of videotapes of experts conducting IPT, group discussions, and role-playing.
The course is designed for mental health clinicians and students who are well acquainted with basic psychotherapy principles.
