Brief Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT)

DIT is a short-term talking therapy (16 sessions) which focuses on the ‘here and now’ and uses a psychodynamic approach to treat depression and anxiety. It is one of the therapies for depression recommended by the Department of Health.

DIT can help you recognise patterns in relationships and behavioural problems and work with your therapist towards alleviating the difficulties you are experiencing. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines for depression state that brief psychodynamic therapy is one option that can be considered for depressed patients as an alternative to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
