Interpersonal Psychotherapy Name: Institution: Discussion Paper Introduction Darnell Yardley is an African-American student who lives outside the campus. The 22-year-old male has a good representation characterized by confidence despite having reported of suffering from depression and anxiety. Darnell had never undergone counseling in his life before and was a little bit reluctant to provide details of his problem. This paper will use the interpersonal psychotherapy model to try to come up with a solution for Darnell’s problem. Client’s Issue Being Discussed Darnell has presented some concerns in his life which included the depression and anxiety. Other concerns were the fact that he couldn’t start and sustain a solid relationship with friends and this made him live a lonely life. Darnell life when he was young was not very satisfying as well having a father who compared his performance with his sisters. One occasion when his dad told him to (Mufson Dorta Moreau & Weissman 2011). Conclusion As long as Darnell is willing to share his feelings and spilling all the details of his previous relationships with friends or even lovers that’s the best start for an effective IPT model. The best way to achieve an effective therapy is by showing the patient that their problem is normal and can be contained. Therapists should make sure that the patient is not sorry for themselves and you are there to help and after winning the patient’s trust everything else falls into place.
