Group Interpersonal Therapy for Depression (Swahili Version)
This manual was authored by the World Health Organization and the Columbia University. It provides guidance on the use of Inter Personal Therapy in a group format, which in many contexts may be more feasible than providing IPT on an individual basis. This Group IPT manual also aims to use simple language. In line with this goal, it uses – from here on – the term depression for moderate-severe depressive disorder. The manual describes practical group and individual exercises to help people understand the problems that contribute to their depression and to find ways to manage them more effectively.
