Dynamic interpersonal therapy (DIT) can help people with emotional and relationship problems.
When a person can deal with relationship problems more effectively, their psychological symptoms often improve.
DIT is a time-limited psychodynamic therapy. Time-limited therapy happens over a fixed number of sessions. One of the main ideas in psychodynamic therapy is that when something is very painful we can try to ignore it. It’s a bit like the saying, “out of sight, out of mind”. DIT is specifically designed to address presenting symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Dynamic interpersonal therapy training partnership with the Anna Freud Centre
We run courses jointly with the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families. Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) is a simple short term (16 sessions) individual therapy protocol for mood disorder. The protocol was designed on the basis of the work of the Expert Reference Group on clinical competencies which worked on identifying key components drawn from manualized psychoanalytic/dynamic therapies.
DIT is designed to be implemented by therapists with an interest in and experience of psychoanalytic/dynamic psychotherapy.
