Interpersonal Psychotherapy IPT, is the best kept secret in mental health. IPT is an evidence-based, short term (8-12 week) model of therapy, developed by Drs. Klerman and Weissman in the 1960’s, to treat depression. Subsequently, IPT has been adapted to treat postpartum depression, eating disorders, dysthymia, and PTSD – without exposure. IPT can be provided for adolescents, adults, and older adults, individually, for families, couples and groups.
IPT is recommended in psychological and psychiatric treatment guidelines as a first-line treatment with equal efficacy to CBT.
