IPC-3 for Assessment, Triage, and Engagement With Forced Migrants

Interpersonal Counseling 3-Session (IPC-3) is an empirically informed treatment that follows a structured and time-limited approach. In order to bridge the treatment gap of forced migrants who need help and those who receive it, IPC-3 offers a novel short‐term psychosocial intervention by clinicians or clinically supervised peer providers to familiarize clients with mental health resources, identify key problem areas, and encourage future connection to mental health services, where appropriate. Utilizing this brief consultation as the first point of introduction to treatment, IPC-3 may increase short-term engagement with mental health treatment for those who need it as well as longer-term engagement via community reintegration. IPC-3 may be uniquely suited to feasibly and substantially address the barriers forced migrants face – promoting engagement in support and addressing interpersonal stressors, including life transitions. This webinar will expose attendees to the foundational model of IPC-3, cover the development and adaptation of IPC-3, discuss the clinical research and evidence base for the protocol, as well as illustrate the strategies and techniques in IPC-3.
After attending this webinar, participants will:

Attain a basic understanding of the principles of the Interpersonal Counseling 3-Session protocol (IPC-3).
Be able to identify how IPC-3 can be used for assessment, triage, and engagement, and consider potential use within the work of serving SOT clients.
Be able to recognize ways in which IPC-3 has been and can be adapted for different cultural and humanitarian contexts.
