Abstract

Adolescence is a transitional period in which interpersonal interactions and behaviors necessary for successful social functioning become increasingly complex. Fortunately, social-skills training has moved beyond basic skill acquisition toward a method characterized by techniques designed to promote generalization and maintenance of an effective interpersonal repertoire. The present paper reviews relevant empirical literature for clinical issues in social-skills training with adolescents. Clinical issues are discussed in the context of the developmental stage of adolescence, and include: (a) Generalization and maintenance; (b) social validation; (c) compliance and resistance; (d) confidentiality; (e) practicality; and (f) termination. Future directions for research and clinical intervention are also discussed.
