Abstract

The effectiveness of psychotherapies, such as interpersonal and social rhythm therapy (IPSRT), is supported by randomized controlled trials. These trials provide minimal direction regarding feasibility of psychotherapy delivery models. The study purpose was to identify factors facilitating implementation and sustainability of an IPRST group for patients with bipolar disorder. Qualitative data were assessed by the normalization process model (NPM). The results demonstrate feasibility of implementation with experienced clinicians, program coordination, and leadership support. Sustainability challenges include aftercare groups, space, and clinician time. The NPM provides a useful framework for evaluation of factors influencing the feasibility of psychotherapy delivery models.
