Interpersonal psychotherapy is a time-limited, manual-and-life-event based, diagnosis-targeted, and empirically tested treatment, which was originally developed for adult out-patients diagnosed with major depression and now for many sorts of disorders. There are some changes in its therapy process, including whether or not to give patients a"sick role", what to include in its problem areas, and how to deal with its termination and arrange time. Besides, this article provides a few process studies, analyses its briefness and integration with other psychotherapeutic factors and at last offers a discussion of features and problems of interpersonal psychotherapy's development.
