This chapter describes the content and structure of Interpersonal Psychotherapy–Adolescent Skills Training (IPT-AST) booster sessions. These sessions are individually scheduled with adolescents following completion of the group. Booster sessions are offered to extend the effects of the group and to help teens apply interpersonal strategies to new situations. Three or four individual booster sessions are recommended in the 6 months following completion of the group, with sessions flexibly timed to meet adolescent needs. The purpose of the booster sessions is to assess how the adolescent is doing, identify any current interpersonal problems, review the communication strategies learned in group, and discuss how these strategies generalize to current interpersonal difficulties.
