Description: Social skills/life skills training has become a dominant method of intervention for many Child & Youth Workers who are employed in the educational system, community based programs, day treatment facilities, residential settings, child guidance clinics and in-home guidance programs. These skills are taught to children, youth and adults in order to expand on the individual's personal accomplishments, enhance self-esteem and self efficacy, build assertiveness skills, enhance anger management skills and increase adaptive and problem solving resources. This course provides the student with the opportunity to design, organize, conduct and evaluate his/her own social skills/life skills curriculum. Students will be required to implement this developed curriculum in their third year field placements [or other appropriate treatment setting].
