126254 - FPS Training: Interpersonal Therapy in Practice

  • : Online

This 20-hour program aims to provide GPs & mental health professionals with an opportunity to learn practical skills in Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) to manage patients in their everyday practice.

Relevance to General Practice

IPT is a short-term therapy which focuses on the inter-relationship between the individual’s mental health and psycho-social difficulties or interpersonal events. 
With limited health care resources available, and a significant need for effective treatments for common mental health disorders, it is important that GPs possess the knowledge and skills to administer effective, time-limited psychotherapy, along with psycho-pharmacotherapy.

  • Use the practice's systems to identify local services and resources that safeguard consumer safety and assist in providing holistic mental healthcare to consume
  • Use appropriate MBS item numbers relating to the provision of mental healthcare
