IPT patient guide

Weissman(3) developed a user-friendly IPT patient guide with accompanying worksheets designed for depressed readers who want to learn about or are receiving IPT. It explains the treatment in simple language. Worksheets can be used to facilitate sessions or to monitor problem areas after treatment. Testing to determine whether the patient guide facilitates treatment has not been done. Informal reports by Gillies and Markowitz (personal communication, 1996) note that patient response has been positive, and that some therapists have found the patient guide useful during training in IPT.
