Title: Social skills training with young adolescents: group and individual approaches in a school setting

Synopsis: Within a group social skills training programme, adolescents aged 12-13-years-old of mixed gender were allocated to either an Individualized Training (IT) Group ( n = 14), or a Standardized Training (ST) Group ( n = 12). Therapist effects were controlled by crossing over two pairs of threrapists; equal numbers of each group were trained by each pair of therapists. The therapists were blind to the aim of the study. The programme ran over 2 years with each client receiving 10 weeks consecutive training. Dependent measures included a self-report questionnaire, a sociometric questionnaire, and a role-taking test. The results suggested that individualized training was superior to standardized training. Skills important for friendship-making were included in the programme, and provision was made for meeting the needs of both impulsive and unassertive adolescents within the group training.
