Enhancing Interpersonal Problem-Solving Skills in Preschoolers.
Taylor, Tommie Nell
The effect of interpersonal problem-solving skills training on the verbal and behavioral competence in the social problem-solving of preschoolers was assessed. An intervention was designed to help preschoolers set goals, generate alternatives, and evaluate outcomes in problematic social situations. For the verbal component of social problem-solving, results indicated that performance of experimental subjects uniformly improved from pretesting to posttesting, whereas that of two out of three control subjects deteriorated. For the behavioral component of social problem-solving, results indicated almost no difference between experimental and control subjects. (PCB)
