The impact of social skills training on the adjustment of children with newly diagnosed cancer



The impact of social skills training on the adjustment of children with newly diagnosed cancer



Journal of Pediatric Psychology 18(6): 751-767



Randomized 64 children ages 5 to 13 years with newly diagnosed cancer to either a Social Skills Training experimental treatment group or a School Reintegration standard treatment group. Children who received explicit training in social skills reported higher perceived classmate and teacher social support at the 9-month follow-up in comparison to pretreatment levels, while parents reported a decrease in internalizing and externalizing behavior problems and an increase in school competence. Methodological improvements for Phase III clinical trials are addressed.
