SOUZA, Marisangela Siqueira de; SOARES, Adriana Benevides  and  FREITAS, Clarissa Pinto Pizarro. Evaluation and follow-up of a Social Skills Training (SST) with elementary school children. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2021, vol.33, n.1, pp. 95-118. ISSN 0103-5665.

In order to gather evidence about interventions and the maintenance of social skills through follow-up, this study investigated the gains of students who took part in a Social Skills Training (SST) and the maintenance of these results. Parents and teachers were also informants on the students' gains, maintenance and deficits in social skills. The sample consisted of 10 children enrolled in a 5th grade class of elementary school at a municipal school in Rio de Janeiro, in a social vulnerability area. The students were between 10 and 13 years old (M = 10.4 years, SD = 1.0 years), of which 60% were female. Data were analyzed using the JT method. The results showed that all the students benefited from the intervention and the gains in cognitive and behavioral dimensions remained stable over time.
