> Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
> Interpersonal Therapy (IPT)
> Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
> Psychoanalysis
> Psychodynamic Therapy

CBT and DBT developed within Clinical Psychology curricula.

Psychoanalysis is more or less Freudian (Psychiatry) and eventually Psychodynamic Therapy (originally Psychiatrists - but then the doors were opened to those of differnent training backgrounds / orientations as less and less Psychiatrists were willing to train). All the way to 'Psychodynamically Oriented Brief Supportive Psychotherapy' which has been watered down broadened enough to be practicable by Clinical Psychologists who may have done a weekned workshop...

IPT?? Was that a form of group therapy?

I think Humanist theories are important in counselling / education. More of a focus on flourishing, personal fulfillment, meaningful life, instead of disease / disorder.
