Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Depression pdf free download. This chapter will describe Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) for depression, including the theoretical and empirical bases, efficacy studies, and derivative forms, and will also make recommendations for its use in clinical practice. Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) is based on the observation that major depression—regardless of symptom patterns, severity, presumed biological or genetic vulnerability, or the patients’ personality traits— usually occurs in an interpersonal context, often an interpersonal loss or dispute. By clarifying, refocusing, and renegotiating the interpersonal context associated with the onset of the depression, the depressed patient’s symptomatic recovery may be accelerated and the social morbidity reduced.
