This book gave me an idea of what to do to conduct IPT. It is definitely not comprehensive and detailed, but it starts you on your way. I had to dive into conducting therapy with patients with very little instruction prior. This book helped me quickly find what I needed to focus on in therapy and how it should be structured so that I could jump into conducting therapy as prepared as possible. It is truly a quick and useful guide for beginning therapists in IPT, however, I believe that a more comprehensive text (which, I believe, is available by these authors) is also necessary to truly understand IPT and the techniques associated with it.
