LIMBERGER, Jéssica  e  ANDRETTA, Ilana. Development of social skills in female crack users: multiple case study. Temas psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.4, pp. 1709-1724. ISSN 1413-389X.

Studies indicate a relationship between low levels of social skills and drug use, but do not contemplate the meanings for female crack users. Thus, the aim was to understand the development of social skills in the life trajectory of these women. This was a qualitative, multiple case study with cross-case synthesis. Data were collected by the researcher in two stages, the first consisted of the application of the socio-demographic data and drug use questionnaire, Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview, Social Skills Inventory, Cognitive Screening of the WAIS-III and Structured Clinical Interview for DSM Disorders. In the second step, the Clinical Interview about Life Trajectory and Social Skills was used. Three women participated in this study. All presented difficulties in social skills since childhood, with repertoires acquired through inadequate models of social interactions with family, school colleagues and peers. Comorbidities may have hindered the use of social skills, which showed deficits in the women with borderline personality disorder. The clinical interview allowed a deeper analysis of the data obtained through the IHS-Del Prette. It indicated that the comorbidities were considered in the evaluation of the social skills and that interventions promoted these skills during the treatment for drug use.
