Interpersonal therapy (IPT) is an evidence-based treatment that has been successfully applied to a wide scope mental health problems. We provide a brief overview of the development of IPT and its current usage. While IIPT has perhaps less overall “name recognition” than CBT, there have been significant (and successful) efforts to both define, and assess, competence in IPT. We then explain how various assessment methods are used to evaluate competence in IPT across four developmentally progressive levels. Finally, we close with a brief discussion of future directions of IPT as an evidence-based treatment.
