Interpersonal Psychotherapy was initially developed in treating depression in people experiencing challenges in their interpersonal relationships and showing depressive symptoms. While depressive symptoms are not always a direct result of negative relationships, relationship issues have the tendency to be one of the most prevalent symptoms in the initial stages of depression. Once addressed, strengthened relationships can play an essential role in providing support throughout the recovery process.
Interpersonal therapists provide active and non-judgmental treatment to guide individuals through therapy and handle challenges and improve mental health. Things that might be addressed over the course of treatment can include interpersonal shortcomings, relational conflict, grief, life stage transition, and other attachment issues.
