About IPT

Interpersonal psychotherapy for adults (IPT) and adolescents (IPT-A) are brief, evidence-based interventions. More than 250 empirical studies support the efficacy and effectiveness of IPT/ IPT-A, for a variety of affective disorders, anxiety disorders, and eating disorders and for a wide range of clients from children to the elderly.

IPT/IPT-A are recognized as evidence-based by Australia’s Medicare Better Access initiative, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence in the UK and the International Cochrane Collaboration.

About this training

This introductory course will present an overview of IPT/IPT-A, including a brief summary of the theory and evidence base. The main focus of the training is on the development of the skills required to implement an effective IPT/IPT-A intervention.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the training participants will be able to:

• Explain IPT theory

• Summarise the evidence base for IPT

• Outline the differences between IPT for adults and IPT for adolescents

• Utilise a holistic framework in assessment and formulation that expands the biopsychosocial model to include cultural, spiritual, historical, political and environmental domains

• Individualise an IPT intervention to best match key client variables

• Describe the general techniques of IPT

• Explain how attachment theory can inform IPT for adolescents and adults

• Build on existing skills in assessment to demonstrate competencies in the assessment of:

  • client suitability for IPT/IPT-A
  • attachment style
  • the four Problem Areas

• Conduct an Interpersonal Inventory

• Transparently develop an Interpersonal formulation with the client

• Outline ways of addressing the four Problem Areas of Complex Grief, Conflict, Role Transition, and Interpersonal Gaps

• Utilise IPT timelines

• Describe the conclusion of the acute phase of IPT and options for maintenance treatment

• Integrate IPT/IPT-A in the Australian clinical context, including in mental health services, schools and private practice

• Address the role of, and consider options for, supervision.

Learning methods

A range of learning methods is used including, didactic presentations, experiential exercises, demonstrations, small group activities, role-play & self-reflection. Participants will derive maximum benefit from the program if they are willing to reflect on their own attitudes and skills.

Endorsement quotes

“The IPT-A workshop led by Anthony Hillin and Rob McAlpine is an excellent training experience with both didactic and hands-on learning. Anth and Rob are exceptional instructors; I’ve had the opportunity to teach with them on several courses and have found them to be first-rate teachers and clinicians. I highly recommend the workshop to all interested in IPT for adolescents or in IPT generally.”

Scott Stuart

"Anthony Hillin and Rob McAlpine's workshop on IPT-A is a very practical, hands-on training experience that is very well received by participants. They have presented the workshop at the NSW Institute of Psychiatry a number of times with very positive evaluations. Participants appreciate their capacity to make the course material easily comprehensible and applicable to participants' own clinical work. They have deservedly built a solid reputation in this field".

Dr Michael Bowden

Head of Medical Education

NSW Institute of Psychiatry (Australia)

"Anthony and Rob have been providing high quality IPT-A training to our clinicians for several years. Their workshops have always been well-researched and practical and are considered priority training for all clinicians working with young people at our site. Anthony and Rob have managed to smoothly blend theory and practice to provide clinically relevant training that is content-rich. Their presentation style is engaging and draws on their own clinical experience, effectively illustrating key points with a variety of interesting case examples. Their workshops have enabled clinicians unfamiliar with IPT to walk away from the training with adequate knowledge, skills and resources to implement IPT strategies with their clients".
