- Treatment Fidelity [ Time Frame: up to 53 months ]Treatment fidelity comprises two dimensions: adherence to the procedures of IPT and level of competence in applying these procedures. These dimensions will be rated separately, and the scores will be combined to form the primary outcome.
- Student Symptom [ Time Frame: up to 53 months ]Eating Disorder and Depression psychopathology will be assessed using a separate count of binge eating and purging (including episodes of self-induced vomiting, episodes of laxative and diuretic use, and episodes of fasting defined as 24 hours without food) for eating disorders and the PHQ-9 for Depression. This measure correlates well with data obtained from structured interviews. This measure will allow us to test the relationship between fidelity to IPT and client outcome.

Experimental: High Intensity Strategy: Train-the-trainer
One therapist from each counseling center randomized to this arm will be selected to become the trainer and will be trained to train their colleagues.
Behavioral: High Intensity Strategy: Train-the-trainer
Trainers in the high intensity condition will attend two separate workshops at Washington University in St. Louis designed to teach participants to conduct IPT and then to train IPT.
Following participation in the first, two-day workshop, each trainer will return to their site and be encouraged to treat at least two cases with eating disorders or depression, audio recording each session.
Trainers will then return to Washington University to be trained in how to train their other staff members in IPT.
Active Comparator: Low Intensity Strategy: Expert Consultation
The IPT expert from Washington University will travel to all counseling centers randomized to this condition and train all participating therapists on site and be available for monthly phone consultation for up to one year following training on site.
Behavioral: Low Intensity Strategy: Expert Consultation
We will provide a two-day workshop on IPT at each site randomized to this condition to train therapists to use IPT for the treatment of Eating Disorders and depresion.
