SOUZA, Marisangela S. de; SOARES, Adriana B  e  FREITAS, Clarissa P. P. de. Social Skills Training (SST) for students facing social vulnerability. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.3, pp. 159-181. ISSN 1516-3687.

This study aimed to promote social skills training for Elementary School students through a psychoeducational model. The research aimed to identify the effects of a Social Skills Training (SST) on social skills, behavioral problems and academic performance of fifth graders in primary school-aged from 10 to 13 years old (M = 10,3; DP = 1,5), 26 girls and 25 boys, living and studying in a social vulnerability area in Rio de Janeiro. The sample was divided into the Intervention Group (IG) and Control Group (CG). The SST was applied into ten sessions to work the skills of Civility, Self-control, Assertiveness, and Academic Skills. The Social Skill Rating System (SSRS) and the School Performance Test (SPT) were used as instruments. The obtained results showed positive gains for the majority of the students participating in the intervention and higher IG scores compared to the CG for all variables.
