Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) is an evidenced-based intervention developed for the management of depression.  IPT is a brief, time-limited intervention initially developed for the treatment of depression in adults.  The treatment is based on the premise that no matter what constitutes the underlying cause of the depression, the depression is inextricably linked to the client’s interpersonal relationships.  The goals of IPT are to decrease symptomology and to improve interpersonal functioning by enhancing communication skills in significant relationships.

Interpersonal psychotherapy for depressed adolescents (IPT-A) has also developed a sound evidence base and is effective in the management of depression in adolescents.
