This chapter provides an overview of Peer Arena Retrospect (PAR) protocols. The PAR protocols were developed to elicit information from adolescents about what has gone wrong in their relationships with peers, so wrong as to affect their behavior and development. Or, if a defensive glitch has been stimulated, the protocols will help the professional discover how this glitch is related to the outcomes of the adolescent's comparisons with peers. This chapter describes thirty PAR protocols for professional use in interview sessions; these protocols focus on peer-related comparisons and evaluations and subsequent thoughts and actions. They are based on the basic premises of the Dynamic Functional Interaction (DFI) model.

Keywords:   adolescents, Peer Arena Retrospect protocols, PAR protocols, peers, comparison, Dynamic Functional Interaction
