Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

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

"The book is very comprehensive and practical in scope. It is written in an interesting and stimulating style in which the authors have successfully distilled the core skills and principles of IPT."--Durrants

"The Clinicians Quick Guide to Interpersonal Psychotherapy embodies the ethos of interpersonal psychotherapy; the authors take a strong clinical stance, make the material feel clinically relevant, and yet ground all of their assertions in empirical evidence. This book represents a useful and welcome addition to the interpersonal psychotherapy library"--American Journal of Psychiatry

"The authors of this book are pioneers of IPT. They have now written an accessible guide for busy clinicians. The book is very comprehensive and practical in scope. It is written in an interesting and stimulating style in which the authors have successfully distilled the core skills and principles of IPT." --The Psychologist

"I hope that with just 162 pages of well-written and easily digestible text, many general clinicians will pick up and read this book and see the need to develop IPT in their own service...With all the applications, the book clearly describes how to adapt standard IPT to the particular issues of those cases. And most of the descriptions of the techniques and applications are followed by excellent case examples that really bring the techniques to life."--Psychological Medicine

"...a valuable tool for training in IPT...intended as book for busy clinicians who have some exposure to IPT but who lack the time to read more detailed manuals and need a a reference book for practice. This goal is accomplished admirably. [The authors] are also deserving of praise for setting a standard to which other authors should aspire: They have successfully integrated a clinically relevant text with a strong evidence base. This text will be extremely useful for evidence-based social workers practicing in settings that address a range of mental health issues. Furthermore, because it is clear, concise, and applicable to common practice problems it will be a useful text in practice classes."--Research on Social Work Practice
