Social Skills

Video models will be drawn from The Science of Making Friends: Helping Socially Challenged Teens and Young Adults by Elizabeth A. Laugeson, Ph.D. This is an evidence-based approach from the UCLA Peers Program. Key Social Skills include: trading information, appropriate eye contact, personal space boundaries, appropriate volume, taking turns in conversation, and starting and entering conversations. There are opportunities to role play in small groups and view video clips.
