Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Insufficient evidence – there either hasn’t been any research on this treatment option or there is a small amount of evidence with unclear conclusions.
Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) is an individual talking therapy which looks at the role of your relationships with other people in your mental health and how your relationships could be a source of support with your PTSD symptoms. Your therapist will look at the links between what happens in your relationships and strategies to manage your PTSD.
