Abstract

A variety of training procedures have been used to develop social skills in children. The common goal of the alternative methods is to train specific behaviors related to social interaction. The skills that are trained vary as a function of the characteristics of the child, including the child’s specific problems, age, and social situations. Training has been applied to children with diverse target problems, including social isolation, lack of assertiveness, and aggressive behavior.
