Abstract

When we speak of effective social skills, we are referring to repertoires of social behaviors that, when used in social interaction, tend to evoke positive reinforcement and generally result in positive outcomes. Acquisition of social skills prepares an individual for competent and effective participation in diverse aspects of human interaction. Thus, social skills training is, in essence, a program designed to teach and enhance communication and interpersonal skills, both implicit and explicit.
