Social Skills Training for Youth with Behavior Disorders.
Schnacker, Lance
This study conducted a descriptive analysis of the research literature on teaching social skills to youth with behavioral disorders. Analysis focused on studies which used a single-subject research design. The 22 articles, representing 38 separate studies, were analyzed in terms of: (1) nature of independent variables; (2) distribution of independent variables across studies; (3) dependent variables; (4) measures used to evaluate the dependent variables; (5) location of studies; (6) inclusion of a generalization program; and (7) authors' conclusions and reviewers' responses. The following findings are discussed: multiple treatments were used in 95 percent of the studies; a large number of discrete behaviors were defined as social skills; all the studies used direct observation to measure the dependent variables; the largest percentage of studies were conducted in a school setting; and there was little evidence that behavior changes effected by the interventions generalized to other settings.
