Interpersonal PsychoTherapy course feedback

IPT Essentials (Interpersonal Psychotherapy), course reviews.

The Association for Psychological Therapies prides itself on the written feedback we receive for our courses. Below is just some of the great reviews the IPT Essentials (Interpersonal Psychotherapy) course has received.

"This was a fantastic course! So interactive and open. The tutor was a great facilitator giving us all time to reflect, question, and made everyone feel so much at ease. When we went to breakout rooms we had so much to say and discover from each other because of the content previously discussed. So enjoyed it and the manual is so well laid out."

Theresa Crossin ('Online Live' version)

"Very well presented and engaging course."

Course Delegate ('Online Live' version)

"I feel confident to be able to implement into practice. I feel like it has really enhanced my knowledge and would like the opportunity of attending further courses."

Leanne Simpson, CAMHS Practitioner

"A very interesting course – very relevant to my new role. The course was delivered brilliantly in a user friendly way. I found drawing on personal experiences very helpful as well as role play (even though I didn’t speak out loud I was able to see which direction I would take as the role play continued)."

Kirsty Hayton-Kylie, CAMHS Practitioner

IPT Essentials

IPT Essentials (Interpersonal Psychotherapy).

A 3-day course.

An exposition on Interpersonal Psychotherapy, in a way that enables and encourages delegates to use it in their practice.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy is a brief psychological therapy for depression, which has now been applied to other areas of mental health. Its goals are simple and practical, namely to reduce symptomatology and to improve social functioning. Interpersonal psychotherapy is recommended in NICE guidelines, notably for the treatment of depression. This is only as it should be because IPT hit the headlines as long ago as 1989 in Elkin et al's massive NIMH study which demonstrated the IPT was the only psychological therapy to effect severe depression (in spite of the inclusion of CBT in the study). On spite of this, and in spite of its strong evidence base, IPT is not as widely practiced as perhaps it should be.

This course therefore focuses primarily on teaching delegates how to deliver IPT or, more precisely, how to incorporate the ideas and methods of IPT into their practice, to the degree they wish to. It also covers a little on the background and the evidence base, but its prime focus is to familiarise mental health practitioners with the ideas and methods of IPT.
