Theories of psychotherapy series


Interpersonal psychotherapy was originally developed as a theoretical placebo for psychotherapy research, but promising outcomes from this "placebo" led to the creation of interpersonal psychotherapy as a time-limited, stand-alone treatment for depression and other problems. This book for practitioners and students reviews the history, key concepts, and applications of interpersonal psychotherapy and describes the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of clients within the approach. Case examples illustrate clinical stages of treatment. Like each book in the series, this book is paired with a DVD (available separately) that demonstrates the theory applied in actual therapy with a real client over the course of several sessions. Frank teaches psychiatry and psychology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Levenson is a PhD candidate in clinical psychology at the University of Pittsburgh.
