This chapter describes the closing phase of acute treatment and the possibility of ongoing further treatment using IPT for PTSD. Issues in termination include consolidation of gains, reinforcing social skills, building patient independence, emotionally acknowledging the end of treatment, and anticipating future problems. Maintenance IPT has demonstrated efficacy for mood disorders, but no data exist for PTSD, where we have only recently found evidence of acute efficacy.
