About this title:
Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) is a brief psychodynamic psychotherapy developed for the treatment of mood disorders. It is being rolled out as part of the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) initiative as the psychodynamic model for the treatment of depression.
This book is a user-friendly, practical guide for the implementation of a brief psychodynamic intervention in routine clinical practice as well as in research protocols. It clearly sets out the theoretical framework, the rationale and strategies for applying DIT to patients presenting with mood disorders (depression and anxiety). Throughout, it is illustrated with detailed examples that help the reader to implement the approach in their practice.
The first and only book to explain the theory and practical application of DIT
Written by the practitioners who have developed and tested the therapy, resulting in an authoritative account of DIT
As part of the IAPT initiative in the UK, this is a book that will have a considerable readership, whilst also appealing to psychodynamic practitioners in the US
"...Brief Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy: A Clinician's Guide is essential reading for mental health professionals who wish to continue to work psychodynamically in the public health sector. It is an impressive and accessible protocol and, as such, is to be highly recommended to neuroscientists and psychodynamic psychotherapists alike who attempt to treat patients with mood disorders - anywhere in the world." - Neuropsychoanalysis
Readership: Required reading to support the national IAPT training initiative, as well as providing a resource for mental health professionals specializing in psychodynamic psychotherapy and wishing to work within a limited time frame.
