During a social skills intervention, young person or the child will often work with the HSR Psychology professional to identify specific social skill difficulties. The HSR Psychology professional may use techniques such as roleplay and prompts to improve the individual’s social skills. The HSR Psychology specialist will often help to promote healthy relationships through improved social skills. The individual may be taught techniques for improving empathy, sharing and confidence in socialising with peers. The individual will be encouraged to practice their socialising techniques in daily life and will gain feedback from the HSR Psychology specialist. Information about improving social skills will be provided to relevant carers in the individual’s life e.g. parents, teachers.
After a social skills intervention the young person should have learned strategies to maintain their improved social skills. Following a social skills intervention it may be suggested by us that we plan a number of follow up sessions, depending on the circumstances of the young person. Outcomes from a social skills intervention can be shared during a post-intervention feedback session or, if requested, a written report. The HSR Psychology team will support you throughout the whole process of a social skills intervention and will offer follow up support when intervention finishes.
Usually we would always recommend a report following the intervention, however, if a written report is not needed then verbal feedback can be provided along with a brief summary.
A report includes what took place during the intervention process, the impact of this intervention and recommendations for proceeding in future. Our reports are thorough and highlight effective strategies for maintaining improved social skills. Get more information about our reports.
Arrange an initial discussion to find out how we can benefit your education setting. The initial discussion lasts 2 hours and is a starting point to identify needs. The cost is £180.
