Theoretical Orientations and Practices of Therapists
Techniques used in IPT
- http://www.interpersonalpsychotherapy.org/index.htmlThe use of various questioning styles such as "Clarification" which seeks to obviate the
patient's biases in describing interpersonal issues as well as "Supportive Listening" are
often therapeutic within themselves. "Role playing" and "Communication Analysis"
are highly behavioural interventions and are invaluable tools in intervening in interpersonal disputes. The "Encouragement
of Affect" allows the patient to experience unpleasant or unwanted affects (that have perhaps resulted in the deployment
of pathogenic defence mechaninsms) safely within the therapeutic frame. This process allows the patient to acknowledge the
affective component of an interpersonal issue eg grief and helps the patient to accept it as a part of their experience. The
"Use of the Therapeutic Relationship" has been described earlier.
