The Interpersonal Psychotherapy Course
Introduction

Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) is one of the recognised NICE therapies for depression in adults and young people, and as such should be one of the range of therapies offered to people within IAPT services.


What is IPT?

IPT is a time limited therapy, that focuses on the treatment of depressive symptoms through the resolution of current interpersonal difficulties. IPT establishes a collaborative focus with the client to address issues of interpersonal loss, change, dispute or isolation, identified as central to the current episode of depression. The therapist works with the client to recognise and communicate about his/her interpersonal difficulties to achieve resolution in the here and now. IPT supports the use and development of effective resources in the client’s interpersonal network.


Who can provide IPT?

IPT practitioners are people who have already had extensive experience of working in mental health and who have previous experience of delivering psychological therapy. IPT training is available to practitioners of all disciplines.


What training is on offer?

Five day didactic training running in the Anna Freud Centre from 9th – 13th November 2015 and supervision on four cases to complete IAPT IPT for Depression Practitioner accreditation with IPTUK.



What are the supervision requirements?

Trainees will be expected to participate in weekly supervision. This will be facilitated by an IPTUK accredited supervisor following the IPT in IAPT supervision protocol. Trainees will be required to submit digital recordings of therapy sessions as well as written and verbal reports. Applicants must confirm that they have access to the required recording equipment and will be able to send recordings to supervisors out of area, prior to training places being confirmed. Trainees must have supervision arrangements in place at the moment of submitting application. If you have troubles arranging supervision please contact marta@annafreud.org.
What accreditation will successful trainees receive?

When the criteria are met, the trainee will receive:



  • IPTUK Certificate of Attendance in didactic training Level A IAPT IPT for Depression after course attendance

  • IPTUK Certificate of Completion for Practitioner Training in Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Depression (IAPT) Level B after supervision and the completion of at least four cases in different focus areas



Who can apply?

Applicants must have:



  • a professional mental health or psychological therapy qualification e.g. counsellor, psychologist etc., and be accredited with their professional body e.g. HPC, BPS

  • two years post qualification experience in conducting psychological therapy

  • a statement of support from a current supervisor on their practice of psychological therapy

  • a statement of support from a manager confirming protected time for training and supervision

  • current employment to delivery HI therapies within a commissioned IAPT service

  • a statement from the CCGs MH Commissioner indicating a wish to commission IPT as part of the IAPT service

  • availability to attend the 5 days training and complete four cases of IPT under supervision.

  • arrangements in place for supervision following the course.


How will my application be assessed?

All applications will be assessed by Roslyn Law to ensure that the minimum entry standard has been reached. Any applications that fall below this standard will not be eligible at this stage but guidance will be given to maximise their potential for future training opportunities.  


A shortlist of applicants will be generated and selection based on clinical aptitude and strategic support from clinical service leads.
Places will be offered to the highest calibre candidates who have full support from managers and commissioners and who appear to give the best opportunity for future roll out of IPT in IAPT. Consideration will be given to the distribution of places to maximise the potential for liaison across local services and mitigate against the impact of attrition.
Please note places are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Each applicant must submit:



  • a completed application form (see below)

  • a reflective reformulation

  • a recorded interactive role play

IPT Practitioner Training: 9th – 13th November 2015, Anna Freud Centre

  1. Reflective Reformulation

Please submit a reflective reformulation of a current or recent case for which the presenting difficulty was depression and treatment was a form of psychological therapy.

The statement should demonstrate your capacity to identify and conceptualise the difficulties of a patient with depression using the main themes of IPT. There is no requirement to have already completed IPT training in order to complete this task.

IPT integrates a medical and interpersonal perspective on depression by exploring the here and now links between depressive symptoms and current interpersonal experience and difficulty.

IPT conceptualised presenting interpersonal difficulties in terms of four main themes:

1. Role Disputes – implicit and explicit ongoing conflict with one or more significant other e.g. between partners; family members etc.

2. Role Transition – a significant change of role status experienced as a loss by the individual e.g. employment to unemployment; married to divorced.

3. Grief – complicated grief reaction following a significant bereavement.

4. Interpersonal Sensitivity – long standing difficulty in establishing or maintaining meaningful and satisfying relationships.

Please provide a reflective statement of no more than 500 words which highlights the links which existed between the depressive symptoms and as many of the above themes as were relevant.  The statement should reflect the role played by interpersonal issues both as precipitants to the recent depressive episode and/or as maintaining factors in the continuation of symptoms. 

The principle focus of the statement should be a speculative formulation in which you identify which of the themes would have served as the main interpersonal focus for the work and state your reasons for making this choice.

The statement should also include comment on what you believe an interpersonal approach to treatment could have added to the work that was completed.



2. Recorded role play of IPT formulation

Please provide a brief audio recording of an interactive role play in which you either:

explain the rationale for IPT to a role play patient, including the interpersonal and time limited framework for treatment, the use of an interpersonal focus and the phases of treatment

or

present the IPT formulation to the role play patient described in your reflective reformulation, identifying the focus area and explaining the link to depression.



The recording should not run for more than 10 minutes.

A brief summary of IPT is provided to guide your reflection.  You should feel free to use additional sources of information on IPT.  Please reference any additional material used.

IAPT Clinical Lead
(Name)_______________________ who works for (organisation)______________ __________________has submitted an application for IPT practitioner training as part of the national programme of IPT for IAPT services. The Anna Freud Centre is seeking to establish that this is a psychological intervention that intervention that is commissioned to be made available locally. You are not being asked to comment on the applicant’s suitability for training as this will be established by other routes.
Introduction

Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) is one of the recognised NICE therapies for depression and as such should be one of the range of therapies offered to people within IAPT services. There is little IPT currently available across the UK and this is part of a national programme of training which is being conducted to increase access. (http://www.iapt.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/curriculum-and-commissioning-outline-final-one.pdf).


What is IPT?

IPT is a time limited therapy that focuses on the treatment of depressive symptoms through the resolution of current interpersonal difficulties. IPT establishes a collaborative focus with the client to address issues of interpersonal loss, change, dispute or isolation identified as central to the current episode of depression. The therapist works with the client to recognise and communicate about his/her interpersonal difficulties to achieve resolution in the here and now. IPT supports the use and development of effective resources in the client’s interpersonal network.


Who can provide IPT?

IPT practitioners are people who have already had extensive experience of working in mental health who have previous experience of delivering psychological therapy. They are trained and supervised to nationally agreed standards. IPT training will ensure there are more practitioners and supervisors competent to deliver NICE approved interventions for depression. Training is available to practitioners of all disciplines.


Will trainees be accredited?

When the criteria are met, the trainee will receive:



  1. IPTUK Certificate of Attendance in didactic training Level A IPT after course attendance and

  2. IPTUK Certificate of Completion for Practitioner Training in Interpersonal Psychotherapy Level B after supervision and the competent completion of at least four IPT cases.


Will IPT training reduce the amount of activity and CBT already commissioned?

It is not anticipated that this would be the case. Existing HI and PWP staff are not invited to apply at this stage. It is essential that they continue to deliver high quality CBT interventions and consolidate their recent training. Please see the applicant’s application form which clearly outlines the criteria for IPT training. All successful IPT applicants will be required to complete the minimum data set and contribute to CCGs activity deliverables so more people should be seen and offered evidence based interventions.



What training has been commissioned ?

A five day a didactic workshop has been commissioned to support therapists in acquiring knowledge and basic practice competencies in the delivery of IPT to ensure that each region has at least a minimum number of IPT practitioners and potential applicants for IPT supervisor training.  The applicant must be in existing employment in an organisation that will be delivering IAPT services. Subsequent supervision, to allow therapists to complete accreditation requirements, will be provided by IPTUK accredited supervisors working in local services.



What is required of clinical leads?

It is essential that organisations commissioned to treat depression in an IAPT service are delivering interventions that are NICE compliant to meet population need. Please confirm that you understand that, should this application be successful, IPT services will be made available in your CCGs area and that this is consistent with relevant commissioning intentions:
