Editorial Reviews

Review

Taking a slice of life and breaking it into its component parts teaches the learners to similarly analyze other situations they encounter. This ability to identify, sort, sequence, and respond enhances students' abilities to learn from experiences, to cope with whatever life throws at them. --Linda E. Albrecht, Journal of Correctional Education

Skillstreaming the Adolescent provides a crisp, concise description of a psychoeducational intervention strategy for young people manifesting withdrawn, aggressive, or immature behavior. --Harold D. Grotevant, Contemporary Psychology

If you are working with adolescents who are struggling with developing healthy social skills, this book may be for you. In Skillstreaming the Adolescent, Goldstein and McGinnis have developed an excellent revised resource book of substance and style toward helping adolescents in and out of school settings. The book's focus is a practical, real life-skills curriculum devoted to helping older middle level and high school youth with a variety of skills ranging from very basic to advanced levels. --Topper Steinman, AIMS Newsletter, Association of Illinois Middle Schools --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Gregory J. Roth on March 2, 2001
Format: Paperback
A super book for working with socially challenged youth. High risk kids often get into trouble because they don't possess appropriate social skills, and they are not motivated to practice positive skills. They simply don't see the value. All to often their innappropriate skills have been rewarded in life. This book prepares teachers and adolescent group leaders to develop missing social skills in a step by step well thought out and research proven manner. The book also prepares the leader with great stratagies for recognizing and dealing with trainee/client resistance. Of course in your group you will not experience this. If you really want results and not just feel good discussions with kids this material is state of the art. Highly recommended!

I came across this book while working with a group of middle school students who were lacking social skills. This book provides step by step social skills information directed at the specific deficiencies. I am looking forward to continuing to work with the information I have gathered from reading this book.

Format: Paperback
I was introduced to this book by the co-ordinator of out patient services as a book that she thought highly of in working with adolescents. A chronically mentally ill client from my program was seeing her outpatient for counseling and she thought the book may work well in assisting the client with social skills. On an individual basis it worked very well with the client. We decided to start a group within our program to see how it would work with other chronically mentally ill clients and it has worked extremely well.
