The authoritative presentation of social skills training (SST)—a highly effective, recovery-oriented intervention for people with serious mental illness—the third edition of this complete manual has been significantly revised with over 60% new material. SST can be implemented by a range of providers in diverse clinical and community settings. In a convenient large-size format, the book is packed with practical tools, including clinical vignettes, dialogues, reproducible curricula (Skill Sheets) for 84 skills, guidance for selecting skills to teach based on participants' needs, and tips for overcoming roadblocks. Purchasers get access to a companion website with downloadable copies of the Skill Sheets as well as online-only resources: 84 Social Skill Handouts for clients and 17 assessment forms and other tools for conducting SST groups.

New to This Edition
  • Chapters on specific populations: SST with young people with high clinical risk or first-episode psychosis, older individuals, and those in residential or inpatient settings.
  • Chapters on cultural factors in SST; gender, sexual identity, and sexual harassment; and technology-based communication.
  • Three additional curricular areas—technology-based communication, school, and problem solving—for a total of 26 more skills than the prior edition.
  • Many new reproducible and downloadable tools.
