Benton, Mary K.; Schroeder, Harold E.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v58 n6 p741-47 Dec 1990
Conducted meta-analytic review of 27 studies on social skills training with schizophrenics, addressing magnitude of treatment effects relative to outcome measures, extent of generalization and maintenance of treatment effects, and impact of diagnostic clarity and training variations. Found that social skills training had strong, positive impact on behavioral measures of social skill, self-rated assertiveness, and hospital discharge rate. (Author/NB)
