In the NIMH comparative psychotherapy study for BED ( Wilfley et al. 1999), a twenty-session format was used.
In the NIMH study ( Wilfley et al. 1999), a co-therapy model was used. This was done for two reasons: (a) Given that the groups consisted of nine members each, it was thought that the addition of a co-therapist would be helpful in managing the group process while maintaining the interpersonal focus for all members. (b) The co- therapy format served as a training tool. Each IPT-G group was facilitated by a trained Ph.D. and an advanced graduate student co-therapist.
In the NIMH study ( Wilfley et al. 1999), midtreatment individual sessions (between sessions 10 and 11) were held as a way to clarify the patient's interpersonal goals and to develop strategies for continued work in the group. See Chapter 1 for a more complete description of these sessions.
In the NIMH study ( Wilfley et al. 1999), each patient was scheduled for a post- treatment meeting. These meetings were used to review the changes that came about as a result of treatment and to establish goals for continued work.
