The Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling graduate program will be hosting a Counseling Skills Workshop on Interpersonal Psychotherapy on Saturday, February 23, from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided!
Depression is one of the most common problems that counselors address with adults and adolescents and is often associated with problems in one’s interpersonal relationships. Loss, conflict, transition, and loneliness may contribute to and maintain a client’s depressive symptoms. Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) is a time-limited, evidenced based intervention for adults and adolescents that focuses on improving depressive symptoms by helping clients have better relationships. This workshop will describe the structure of IPT, the primary components of treatment, and the specific therapeutic techniques used with clients. Activities will include mini-lectures and demonstrations related to each stage of IPT, with ample opportunities for clinical skills practice and feedback.
