This guidebook provides a handy reference for youth to the eight most important social skills and their behavioural steps. Each step includes a rationale for why it is important and hints on how it can best be applied. Eight social skills are included: following instructions, disagreeing appropriately, accepting criticism or a consequence, talking with others, showing respect, accepting "e;no"e; for an answer, introducing yourself, and showing sensitivity to others. The behavioural steps to each skill are presented, each with a rationale that youth will respond to and helpful hints on how they can accomplish the behaviour.
