SILVA, Mariana de Paula e and MURTA, Sheila Giardini. Social skills training for adolescents: an experience in the program of comprehensive attention to the family. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2009, vol.22, n.1, pp.136-143. ISSN 0102-7972. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722009000100018.
This paper presents a process evaluation of a social skills program for adolescents from the Comprehensive Attention to the Family Program. The intervention consisted of 11 psychoeducational group sessions, with cognitive behavioral techniques. The results revealed satisfaction toward the intervention, mainly about the freedom to self-expression and the positive effects of the intervention. The most frequent adherence indicators to the group were to report problems, to report feelings, to explain the causes of their own behavior and to offer support to their colleagues. The data indicate that the intervention had a successful process, which results and impact may be verified in future studies.
