CUNHA, Silvia Mendes da et al. Social skills in alcoholics: an exploratory study. Rev. bras.ter. cogn. [online]. 2007, vol.3, n.1, pp. 31-39. ISSN 1808-5687.

The purpose of the present study was to evaluate social skills among alcoholics, as well as to investigate personal expectations and beliefs regarding the effects of alcohol use - which are believed to be permissive for alcohol consumption, and potentially lead to alcoholism. Two instruments were employed: (a) Social Skills Inventory (IHS), and (b) Personal Expectations and Beliefs about Alcohol (IECPA). The outcomes showed that social skills deficits are frequent among the participants, particularly in the ability to express positive feelings, conversational skills, and social graces. Moreover, it was found that participants held expectations and beliefs that social interactions can be facilitated through alcohol consumption.
