Interpersonal therapy is a short-term treatment that is used for
depression and other mental health problems. The treatment focuses on social
and personal relationships and related problems.
Interpersonal therapy helps a person assess his or her
interpersonal skills, issues of grief and loss, role disputes in relationships,
and relationship transitions. The emphasis then shifts to finding solutions for
the interpersonal and relationship problems the person may be having.
