Relationship conflict for the psychiatric patient can have significant detrimental effects. There are specific types of interactions that can increase conflict and predict the potential for relapse; these have been identified by research and designated as components of Expressed Emotion (EE). Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) have been very effective when targeting specific psychiatric diagnoses, but less effective when addressing relationship conflict. The majority of studies addressing relationship conflict have taken place in an outpatient, long-term setting. There is limited research that utilizes an inpatient short-term intensive therapy with relationship conflict as its sole focus, targeting areas known to contribute to relapse. This research was designed to address whether a short-term intensive inpatient Cognitive Interpersonal Therapy intervention, which specifically addresses these important components of relationship conflict, can impact relationship satisfaction, emotion regulation, destructive thought processes, and re-hospitalization at six weeks after discharge, when compared to a treatment as usual group.
