If you have been waiting for a social skills training program that really works, this is it! Dr. Baker translates 20 years of outcome research and clinical experience into this new, user-friendly model to support social skills training. There are 92 specific skill lessons covering:

  • Emotion management (frustration, anger, anxiety, OCD, social fears and depression)
  • Verbal and nonverbal communication
  • Play and group interaction.
  • Empathy, friendship, and dating
  • Conflict management
  • Dealing with emergency situations

Social Skills Training is more than a manual of lessons as specific chapters clearly articulate the critical components of effective skills training including partnering with clients to establish motivation, identifying relevant skill goals, teaching skills suited to the learners' language functioning, generalizing skills, creating accepting peer environments, and measuring progress. This is a must have reference for teachers, professionals and parents that hope to improve social functioning in their students.
