Abstract

As previously mentioned, social skills training programs for children focus on two primary areas: the remediation of specific social skills deficits and the development and refinement of normative social abilities as a preventive measure. In both instances several issues can arise related to the design, implementation, and ramification of the type of intervention. Clinicians, teachers, and childcare workers involved in social skills training with children, typically report that they encounter occasional clinical and logistical problems which might hinder the effectiveness of the program. In this chapter, therefore, we address the more common problem areas so as to provide a basic troubleshooting guide for social skills trainers.
