From Research to Application

  • Richard M. Eisler
  • Lee W. Frederiksen

Overview

  • The implications of psychological theory and research for practical applications are discussed.

  • Development in social-skills training has had its roots in early research on the social competence of psychiatric patients, and more recent notions of the importance of assertiveness in interpersonal relationships.

  • Two models explaining social ineffectiveness are presented. In one model, social anxiety is seen as inhibiting the expression of inter- personal competence. In the alternative model, skill deficits are seen as the result of inadequate learning experiences.
