The termination phase (sessions 7–8) of Interpersonal Psychotherapy–Adolescent Skills Training (IPT-AST) is described in this chapter. The main goals of the termination phase of IPT-AST are to establish group members’ sense of competence and to solidify gains made during the middle phase of the intervention. Termination phase tasks include identifying which communication strategies have been helpful and challenging for each teen, reflecting on the changes adolescents have made in important relationships, and discussing how teens can maintain and build on what they have learned in group. Group members also identify warning signs that would let them know they might be experiencing symptoms of depression. Teens discuss strategies that they can use to improve their mood if they notice these warning signs.
