About This Resource

Social skills training (SST) is a type of behavioral therapy used to improve social skills in people with mental disorders or developmental disabilities. SST may be used by teachers, therapists, or other professionals to help those with anxiety disorders, mood disorders, personality disorders, and other diagnoses. It is delivered either individually or in a group format, usually once or twice a week, and is often used as one component of a combined treatment program.
