Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT)
Brief Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) is a 16-session, structured talking therapy for depression which is based on psychodynamic principles.
In DIT symptoms of depression are understood to be linked to a key repeated pattern in relationships that has its origins in childhood. A central task of DIT is to identify this repeated pattern and then use the pattern to make sense of difficulties in the here and now. A DIT therapist will aim to help patients to reflect on their thoughts and feelings and to reduce their distress by finding more helpful ways of being in, and managing, relationships.
