Teaching Social Skills to Youth, 2nd Edition

by Tom Dowd, MA and Jeff Tierney, MEd

More than 182 social skills are broken down into their component behaviors on pages you can reproduce for your use. Skills from the basic (following instructions, disagreeing appropriately, introducing yourself) to the complex (clarifying values and beliefs, stress management, conflict resolution) are covered.

Full Description:   

This 325-page book is a master guide to social skill instruction.

New updates to the second edition of this classic guide to the teaching of social skills include:

  • A CD-ROM that helps readers search for social skills by title, category, or problem behavior and allows you to print copies of social skill steps for display.
  • New information on how to help youth generalize the use of individual skills to varied social situations
  • An index that cross-references the 182 skills to the Six Pillars of Character - respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, caring, and citizenship.
  • References to and information from the latest research findings.
The book also features the step-by-step component behaviors to 182 skills, from the basic (following instructions and introducing yourself) to the complex (managing stress and resolving conflict). Opening chapters explain the individual and group teaching techniques that enable youth to recognize when, where, or with whom to use a particular skill. The authors also show how to plan skill-based treatment interventions for youth with difficult problems such as substance abuse, aggression, running away, depression, or attention deficits. Teaching Social Skills to Youth is an ideal resource for the classroom, in counseling or therapy, and in job training programs.

More than 180 social skills are broken down into their component behaviors on pages you can reproduce for your use. Skills from the basic (following instructions, disagreeing appropriately, introducing yourself) to the complex (clarifying values and beliefs, stress management, conflict resolution) are covered.

Also included are a discussion of individual and group teaching techniques and how to plan skill-based treatment interventions for difficult youth problems. Skills are cross-referenced by problem behavior and situation so you can easily find the skills your youth need to succeed in school, at home, on the job, or out in the community.

Soft bound, reproducable, CD included. 325 pages.
