Evidence-based psychotherapies like IPT are increasingly being offered to patients, and patients are requesting them as information filters into the popular press and social media. While some training programs are incorporating IPT, progress is slow, and the status of certification varies by country. This chapter outlines how clinicians can learn IPT, a process that involves three key elements: read the IPT manual, attend an IPT training workshop, and obtain clinical supervision on training cases. Learning IPT involves discovering how to take your basic psychotherapy training and modify it for use with a specific set of strategies. The authors recommend conducting at least two time-limited, diagnosis-focused IPT cases to gain comfort with the structure and techniques of the treatment. A list of resources is provided at the end of the chapter, including translations of seminal IPT manuals.
