Interpersonal psychotherapy

BMJ Group Medical Reference

This therapy explores how you get along with other people. It's based on the idea that having trouble in relationships (maybe with your parents, spouse, or friends at school) can cause you problems.

You and your therapist discuss these problems and try to make them better. You don't talk about food, dieting, or being thin. [49] [50] [51]
