People Skills for Young Adults is a complete course in social skills training for students in their teens, and is particularly appropriate for those with mild learning difficulties. The book is practical in emphasis, and comprises a series of sessions accompanied by leader sheets. Examples of scenarios are given, and students are encouraged to act them out and discuss the issues raised in them. There are also role plays and student help sheets, which develop the areas covered in the sessions. The areas include:
friends and relationships
self-confidence and shyness
counselling and listening skills.
Full guidance and practical suggestions are included, so that leaders do not require any previous experience of teaching this subject.
