Common Dimensions of Social Skills of Children and Adolescents: A Taxonomy of Positive Behaviors.
Caldarella, Paul; Merrell, Kenneth W.
School Psychology Review, v26 n2 p264-78 1997
Reviews, analyzes, and synthesizes two decades of factor-analytic research on child and adolescent social skills to derive an empirically based taxonomy. Five behavioral dimensions occur consistently: Peer Relations, Self-Management, Academic, Compliance, and Assertion. Clinicians and researchers may use taxonomy to provide nomenclature with which to refer to five positive social-skill patterns for identification and implementation with practice. (Author/JDM)
