Overview


Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) is a brief psychodynamic psychotherapy developed for the treatment of mood disorders. It is being rolled out as part of the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) initiative as the psychodynamic model for the treatment of depression.

This book is a user-friendly, practical guide for the implementation of a brief psychodynamic intervention in routine clinical practice as well as in research protocols.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In sum, brief dynamic interpersonal therapy is a first-rate addition to the collection of brief dynamic treatment manuals from which practitioners, researchers, and students can choose. In my opinion it has four unique contributions: (a) the extensive discussion of therapist competencies; (b) the step-by-step guide to formulating a therapeutic focus; (c) the specific guidelines for making transference interventions;
and (d) the requirement to gather session-by-session data on treatment progress and to feed this information back into the therapeutic work. This manual will be a valuable resource for the category of readers that I mentioned. Already, I use it in a brief therapy seminar that I teach. My students have found it readable and believe that it has contributed to their understanding of the processes and procedures associated with brief dynamic therapies." -- Jeffrey L. Binder, PhD, ABPP, Psychoanalytic Psychology
