Interpersonal

Psychotherapy (IPT)

 

Humans are vulnerable to depression if attachments do not develop properly or if the bonds are disrupted. The main goal of IPT is to improve the quality of a client’s interpersonal relationships and social functioning to help reduce their distress and to enhance their interpersonal skills.

IPT is recommended for dealing with disputes that emerge from conflicting expectations between partners, family members, close friends or coworkers.
