BOLSONI-SILVA, Alessandra Turini  and  BORELLI, Laura Moreira. Training Parental Educational Social Skills: Comparison Procedures from the Intervention's time. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.1, pp. 36-58. ISSN 1808-4281.

This study aims to compare two intervention procedures with parents seeking to promote better social interactions with their children, through training and consolidation of social skills. The procedures were different only in relation to the time in which they were administered: 20 sessions applied once week for one group (G1) and twice a week for the other group (G2). The Parental Education Social Skills Interview was applied (RE-HSE-P). It was noticed that both groups have presented positives outcomes, however G1 has presented enhanced social skills for both the parents and children and G2 has presented reduction on behavior problems. It is concluded that the intervention of longer duration can provide better acquisition and consolidation of skills, and it is pointed the necessity of preventive work with the population, and comparative studies for the improvement of interventional procedures.
