The Clinician's Quick Guide to Interpersonal Psychotherapy is a practical guide for busy clinicians who want to learn Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT). Initially developed as a treatment for major depression, IPT has proven highly effective as a therapy for a number of other disorders. IPT can be combined with medication, and it is a safe alternative to medication for those individuals who may not be able to take antidepressants. IPT has been shown not only to relieve symptoms but to build social skills as well.

Learn how to use IPT to effectively treat depression, as well as other disorders including bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and borderline personality disorder. Written by the originators of the treatment, this practical book describes how to approach clinical encounters with patients, how to focus IPT treatment, and ways to handle therapeutic difficulties. The book updates research findings on IPT and addresses its adaptation to different cultures. Complete with clinical examples and sample therapist scripts throughout, this guide foregoes the theoretical and empirical background of IPT, and focuses on teaching you the best way to deliver this effective, time-limited, diagnostically focused, and immensely practical treatment.
- from the publisher


"[This book] is a marvelous "how-to" guide that teaches the reader the ins and outs of IPT. The prose style is clear and jargon-free. The clinical examples are numerous and beautifully illustrative of what to say and do. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about Interpersonal Psychotherapy."-- Glen O. Gabbard, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Baylor College of Medicine

"This book, designed for busy practitioners, is an excellent distillation of the principles and methods entailed in conducting IPT in patients with depression, anxiety, eating, and borderline personality disorders. Practical, straightforward, pithy and very reader friendly, this book is a must read for students and clinicians. The best exposition of IPT to date with extraordinary clinical insights and practical guidance."-- A. John Rush, M.D., Professor of Clinical Sciences and Psychiatry, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center

"The Clinician's Quick Guide to Interpersonal Psychotherapy provides practicing clinicians with what they need to know to actually do the treatment and provides a rich and easily accessible compendium of advances made in the treatment of special populations and other disorders. IPT is a powerfully successful clinical intervention; publication of the Quick Guide should help make it more accessible to the clinical practice community."-- Steven D. Hollon, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Vanderbilt University
