In this study, the effect of a Communication and Conflict Resolution Skill Training Program on sociotropy levels of university students were investigated. The working group was consisted of thirty two voluntary university students. A pre-test and post-test model was used with control group and experimental group, each consisting of sixteen individuals. University students' sociotropy levels were measured by the Sociotropy-Autonomy Scale which was adapted to Turkish by Sahin, Ulusoy and Sahin (1993). The data were analyzed with independent samples t-test, paired samples t-test and one-way ANOVA for repeated measures techniques. Data handled in this research had shown that university students who participated in the ten sessions of communication and conflict resolution skill training program had lower levels of sociotropy than the other individuals who had not participated in the training program. There was no significant change on the sociotropy levels of the control group. After three and six months, one-way ANOVA for repeated measures technique was used for the experimental group and it was found that there was no significant relationship between sociotropy levels of post-test scores and follow up scores. The findings had shown that the communication and conflict resolution skill training program had positive effects on the levels of sociotropy among university students.
