Synopsis

This handbook covers the benefits of social skills coaching, which is a one-on-one, skills-based training that addresses an individual's specific difficulties in navigating his/her social environment.



Social skills coaching helps develop an individual's ability to more effectively communicate with others. Some of the social skills addressed in this book follows:



Learning different perspective-taking strategies to help relate to others;

Handling rejection and rumors;

Becoming aware of and understanding non-verbal communication (i.e., being aware of our body and others body languages, facial expressions, gestures, etc.);

Practicing active listening and engaging with others and more.
