This handbook covers in its entirety 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 are:
- Learning different perspective-taking strategies to help relate to others
- Handling rejection and rumors
- Becoming aware of and understanding non-verbal communication (ie, being aware of our body and others body languages, facial expressions, gestures, etc.)
- Practicing active listening and engaging with others, and more.
