Behavioral Tech announces its newest online training course -- Fundamentals of Interpersonal Psychotherapy: IPT with a Focus on Depression. IPT is an effective means to treat mild to moderate depression and other disorders and helps clients improve the quality of social relationships and interpersonal skills. This training focuses on IPT for treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) in adults as an effective alternative to a life of taking depression medications.
Depression is one of the most common disorders with a recurrent nature that requires treatment and protection against subsequent episodes. Depression affects about 121 million people worldwide, and approximately 25 percent of MDD patients experience chronic, unremitting occurrences, requiring long-term treatment.
In this online training, IPT expert Scott Stuart, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Iowa, explains and models the principles of IPT. The course helps learners target and address clients’ problem areas while considering their social support and vulnerability factors.
Users learn the research supporting the efficacy of the treatment, receive access to 16 printable resource documents, and practice the techniques within the course with virtual clients.
Fundamentals of Interpersonal Psychotherapy is an ideal course to complement university classes, and is 50% off retail for students, as are all Behavioral Tech online courses. Professors using the course with their class will receive complimentary access. For more information, please contact Emily Hazelton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
