An introduction to Interpersonal Psychotherapy in Clinical Psychology Practice

Thursday 21st June 2018 at BPS Offices, Tabernacle Street, London

This workshop is being organised by the East of England branch of the Division of Clinical Psychology. The workshop will aim to provide an introduction to some of the core concepts and skills of Interpersonal Psychotherapy, and how these ideas can be used to influence clinical practice.

The morning will offer an overview of the Interpersonal Psychotherapy model and how it can be used to make sense of presenting problems. The evidence base supporting the use of the model will also be discussed. The afternoon will focus on providing strategies and transferable skills that can be used across the lifespan. These skills will include communication tips and assessments of network relationships.

This event will be useful for anyone wishing to learn more about Interpersonal Psychotherapy, and will offer skills to inform practice in a range of settings and clinical populations. This workshop will be suitable both for IPT novices and for those with prior experience of the model.

Roslyn will be aiming to tailor the workshop to the learning needs and requirements of those who attend.
