The development of a brief psychodynamic protocol for depression: Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT)

Alessandra Lemma , Mary Target and Peter Fonagy

This paper outlines the development of a manualized, brief (16-session) psychodynamic interventionDynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT)1 – for the treatment of depression. DIT is based on a distillation of the evidence-based brief psychoanalytic/psychodynamic treatments pooled together from manualized approaches that were reviewed as part of the competence framework for psychological therapies first commissioned by Skills for Health. DIT has now been selected as the brief psychodynamic protocol that will be provided nationally in the UK as part of the IAPT programme. This paper will first describe the methodology underpinning the competence framework followed by an overview of the model, its relevance to depression, and finally its strategies and techniques.
