This chapter describes the structure and content of the mid-group session in IPT-AST, which is scheduled with each adolescent individually between group sessions 4 and 6. The purpose of the mid-group session is to review how the teen is doing, discuss areas that still need to be addressed, and allow the teen to practice new communication strategies related to one of her interpersonal goals for group. For teens whose identified goals involve parents, this session is a particularly useful opportunity to practice new communication strategies with the parents in a safe environment. When a parent cannot attend the mid-group session, the mid-group session allows the teen to do targeted work toward her interpersonal goals in a one-on-one session.
