Interpersonal Psychotherapy

Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) is a time-limited psychotherapy that focuses on the interpersonal context and on building interpersonal skills. IPT is based on the belief that interpersonal factors may contribute heavily to psychological problems. It is usually distinguished from other forms of therapy by its emphasis on the interpersonal rather than an individual’s inner psychological processes or issues. IPT aims to change the person’s interpersonal behaviour by fostering adaptation to current interpersonal roles and situations.
