Therapists wondering whether it’s possible to combine evidence-based, structured interventions with an empathic, even “heart-cantered” stance will find their interest piqued by Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT).
If you’ve never heard of IPT, wonder what it comprises, or are curious about how it differs from relational methods, you’ll gain a detailed understanding from watching this video.
Here, veteran clinician Scott Stuart, MD, takes you through the nuts and bolts of IPT, demonstrating its application to postpartum depression in a course of treatment with a young mother.
You’ll watch Stuart work with a struggling mother who’s just had her second child and is experiencing symptoms of postpartum depression. She arrives at his office frustrated by a lack of support from her husband, feeling guilty for wanting time to herself, and questioning her choice to leave her career for full-time parenting. With useful commentary interspersed alongside corresponding sessions, Stuart guides his client (and the viewer) through supportive inquiry and activities.
You’ll learn how IPT incorporates the use of affect, communication analysis, problem solving, and more to help clients move through their difficulties. With humour, sincerity, and a firm command of the model, Stuart is trustworthy and easy to follow, and you’ll see his client change dramatically by their final session. You’ll also get a feel for termination using this method, with client feedback encouraged.
This video offers an accessible primer on a multifaceted therapeutic approach. For a straightforward yet deeply engaging resource on IPT, look no further than this refreshing video.
