The reactions to the crises experienced in daily life
differ from person to person. In these reactions; genetic factors,
childhood life events, attachment, social support, environmental factors, and
adulthood experiences are effective. KIPT aims to reduce clinical symptoms
by causing a transformation in the interpersonal relationships of patients
during the troubled processes that they experience in moments of
crisis. In these moments of crisis, emphasis is placed on the patient’s
interpersonal relationships. During therapy, patients learn to develop
their relationships, discover the social support networks around them, and
gently seek the emotional and concrete support they need. Even though KIPT
has little in common with other psychotherapies; in psychodynamic
psychotherapy, which connects childhood, past life events and mental
problems, He does not directly use the main methods in cognitive
behavioral therapy or other therapies that give homework for mental
problems. The patient does not put the therapist relationship and
transference at the center of therapy. The theories that KIPT is based
on; Attachment theory, interpersonal relations theory, social theory. In
KIPT, mourning and disappearances (loss of parents, spouse, children, friends,
stillbirth, job loss, bankruptcy), role transitions (being a mother or father,
job change, change of position at work, divorce, retirement, separation),
interpersonal conflicts (family conflicts, conflicts in the work environment)
are the main focal points. KIPT is recognized as an effective treatment
modality by the American Psychiatric Association, the UK National Institute of
Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).
