About Interpersonal Psychotherapy
Interpersonal therapy, or IPT, is most often used on a one-on-one basis to treat depression or dysthymia, a more persistent but less severe form of depression, according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).
IPT is based on the idea that improving communication patterns and the ways people relate to others will effectively treat depression. IPT helps identify how a person interacts with other people. When a behavior is causing problems, IPT guides the person to change the behavior. IPT explores major issues that may add to a person's depression, such as grief, or times of upheaval or transition. Sometimes IPT is used along with antidepressant medications.
