Thomas R. Kratochwill, Doran C. French
ABSTRACT: Interest in improving the social skills of withdrawn or isolated children has become a research priority in recent years. Advances in the area of training children’s social skills have occurred in conceptual, methodological, and practical areas. This manuscript provides an overview of issues in the diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of withdrawn or isolated children using a social skills approach. Examples of various assessment and treatment approaches are presented. Limitations of existing conceptual and methodological approaches are discussed along with directions for future research and practice.
