Overview

"In this age of evidence-based practice, clinicians dealing with prevalent but difficult clinical problems are looking for treatment procedures that are both effective and easy to implement. Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT), focusing as it does on reducing stress from and improving significant interpersonal relationships, is a very strong intervention for depression and related problems. In this clearly written, brief presentation, Frank and Levenson present the essentials of IPT in a manner that clinicians will find immediately useful. This primer should be on every clinician's bookshelf–David H. Barlow, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry; Founder and Director Emeritus, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University, Boston, MA" "APA offers the Theories of Psychotherapy Series as a focused resource for understanding the major theoretical models practiced by psychotherapists today. Each book presents a concentrated review of the history, key concepts, and application of a particular theoretical approach to the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of clients. The series emphasizes solid theory and evidence-based practice, .ractice, illustrated with rich case examples featuring diverse clients. Practitioners and students will look to these books as jewels of information and inspiration." "Each book in this series, written by a leader in the field, provides a concise, clear, and informative introduction to a major model of psychotherapy. If you teachpsychology or want to keep abreast of this ever-changing field, you will find this serie to be a treasure: It is a major publishing milestone.—Robert L.
