What Is Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy?
Dynamic interpersonal therapy (DIT) is an evidence-based, short-term psychotherapy treatment. It was originally developed by psychologist David Malan in the 1960s and has been adapted to modern-day society with modifications for current research findings on how best to help people move forward after trauma. DIT is used as a way of helping survivors of abuse, assault, or any type of traumatic event process their experiences so that they can find peace and healing.
This therapy is short-term and focuses on recovery work instead of digging into the past. It helps survivors build up their resources so that they can start living a normal life again.
How Does Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy Work?
Dynamic interpersonal therapy is a short-term treatment option designed specifically with trauma survivors in mind. It focuses on recovery work instead of digging into past experiences (which can take up too much time) and helps build up the survivor’s personal coping skills so that they’re able to move forward after experiencing significant pain from traumatic events.
It also helps the survivor build up their resources. This is done by having the therapist and client work together to identify what those resources might be. The therapist then helps the client to use those resources in their day-to-day life.
The psychotherapist and the survivor meet for a total of twenty sessions. Dynamic interpersonal therapy is not designed to be done in one long session, so this means that it’s completed over twelve weeks with two meetings per week. During these sessions, doctors work on three important goals:
- To help survivors identify their traumatic experiences and how they affect their life now.
- To help them to use their resources in everyday situations that may be triggering for the client, such as meeting new people or going out into crowded places.
- To help survivors start thinking about what kind of future they might like to have, even if it’s very difficult for them right now.
Sessions of Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy
Sessions of dynamic interpersonal therapy last for fifty minutes each. The first thirty minutes of the session are typically used for discussion, with the final twenty being focused on homework that is designed to help the survivors work through their experiences in a more effective way.
There are approximately twenty sessions in total, with two meetings per week. There is a twelve-week time limit and after this period of time, the client will be reevaluated to see what else they might need from treatment. These sessions are:
Session 1-5: In this session, the therapist and client will discuss the goals of therapy and what to expect from dynamic interpersonal therapy.
Session6-10: In this session, the therapist and client will work on identifying traumatic experiences that have occurred in the past.
Session 11-15: In this session, survivors will start using their resources in different situations. The therapist will help them to do this in a safe way.
Session16-20: This is when survivors begin thinking about what kind of future they would like to have, even if it’s difficult for them right now.
Sessions last for fifty minutes each with two meetings per week totaling twenty sessions over twelve weeks; Sessions focus on discussion (thirty minutes) then homework designed to help the survivors work through their experiences more effectively.
Types of Issues Treated With DIT
Dynamic interpersonal therapy is not just for people who have experienced abuse or assault. It can be helpful for anyone who has gone through a traumatic event and is struggling to cope as a result.

How Effective Is Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy?
