Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) focuses on relationship roles and improving communication to better relate to people in your life. It’s a time-limited therapy, meaning there are defined goals and a timeframe to achieve them.
IPT explores how unresolved grief, differing role expectations, major life changes or transitions, and problems forming good relationships with others can affect the way you see yourself and interact with others. Therapy involves:
- Identifying relationship problems
- Learning how to express emotions in healthy ways
- Learning skills for improving and developing relationships
