Teach youth the skills they need to be successful with this easy-to-follow Guide to teaching basic to complex life skills.
Teaching Social Skills to Youth is Boys Town’s trademark manual, offering step-by-step component behaviors to 183 social skills.
These social skills will enable young people to manage themselves successfully at home, in school, at work, and in life. The specific behavioral steps needed to perform each skill are included.
The beginning chapters explain the individual and group teaching techniques that help youth recognize when, where, or with whom to use particular skills. The authors also show how to plan skill-based treatment interventions for youth with difficult problems such as substance abuse, aggression, running away, depression, or attention deficits.
This third edition also gives insights and information based on the latest research findings.
Also added are details about multi-tiered approaches to social and emotional learning, and how skills relate to executive function. The appendices highlight what skills to include when you want to focus on social and emotional competency, executive function processes, behavior problems and problem situations.
Printable posters for each skill is also included.
