Welcome to the Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy website

What is DIT?

Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy, or DIT, is a simple short term (16 sessions) individual therapy protocol for mood disorders. 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. www.ucl.ac.uk

DIT is an easy to acquire, semi-structured, treatment protocol that is currently being investigated; It has been primarily developed to work with depressed and anxious patients. This protocol for brief dynamic work is being rolled out nationally within the IAPT programme for work with depressed patients.
