Adolescence is the most important period of growth for humans. The conflict and disagreement which exists within family relationships will affect the children behaviors. Family relationships are the cause of many problems in adolescents, to develop a training program on problem-solving skills for adolescent girls to change their relationship with their parents.
This study will determine whether peer interaction training interventions are effective in enhancing the social relationships of children with autism.
This study is a pre-test, post-test single group design with follow-up at months three and six. Twenty-four individuals total will participate in this study with 6 participants in each of 4 cohorts. Cohorts will be run in a time sequential manner with only one cohort run at a time. Participants and their parents will complete pre-test measures including both paper and pencil measures and a video-recording to assess the participant's social interaction skills and fluency. Th...
This study will determine whether people with social phobia are deficient in certain social skills.
The purpose of this study is to examine whether patients who participate in cognitive remediation prior to a skills training program learn and perform the skills better than patients who do not participate in cognitive remediation.
Many homeless Veterans with serious mental illness (SMI) enroll in the VA's Supported Housing (VASH) program but struggle to obtain and sustain housing. Social skills are an important-but underappreciated-determinant of housing outcomes for homeless adults. The investigators hypothesize that homeless Veterans with SMI who participate in a social skills training program, tailored for housing-related social skills, will obtain housing quicker, retain housing longer, and show impr...
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the leading cause of disability in the United States. Studies have shown that training patients to cope with pain improves physical and social functioning, increases self-efficacy, and reduces psychological distress. However, this type of training is not available to the vast majority of OA patients. This study will determine the effectiveness of a training program for coping with pain that will be administered in community medical practices.
Despite the psychosocial difficulties common among young adults with autism spectrum disorders(ASD), little to no evidence-based social skills interventions exist for this population. Using a randomized controlled trial(RCT) design, the current study tested the effectiveness of an evidence-based, caregiver-assisted social skills intervention known as PEERS for Young Adults with high-functioning young adults with ASD using self- and caregiver-report measures.
This study will examine whether brain stimulation paired with social skills learning can help teenage boys with autism learn how to make and keep friends. Brain stimulation can enhance learning in some people. This study involves enrolling in a 14-week training program where teenage boys with autism interact in small groups and learn social skills. During the 14-week program participants will receive active brain stimulation, or non-active stimulation (placebo). Before and afte...
Early adolescence marks a significant development in teens' social abilities, shifting from play to conversation-based activities, and having stronger and more intimate friendships. Parents contribute to this shift by practicing reciprocal social interaction with their teens. For teens with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) this shift in their peers' social abilities extends their characteristic social deficits even further. Social skills deficits in individuals with ASD ar...
While parents are considered essential for the effective treatment of adolescents with anorexia nervosa, the most effective manner to involve parents in treatment is unknown. Given reports of high caregiver burden among parents of this clinical group, finding treatments that minimize parent burden while improving the child's eating disorder symptoms is essential. This investigation will examine the preliminary effectiveness of a parent skills group and adolescent skills ...
The goal of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of a combined social skills training and cognitive-behavioral therapy intervention for seriously mentally ill veterans as they begin employment.
Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) exhibit characteristic deficits in social initiation and there are no empirically validated treatments specifically for this core deficit. While parent training is known to be a critical intervention component, few social skills programs involve parents. This study will capitalize on an existing social skills group already established at the community agency Abilities United, with the goal of enhancing the program's effectiveness by ...
This study will determine the effectiveness of skills training in people with schizophrenia and the applicability of the acquired skills in the “real world.”
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether a peer led social skills training intervention is more effective than a social activity group (i.e. usual care) in improving social skills following brain injury.
Childhood adversity leads to social difficulties, chronic illness, and early mortality for many, but not all adults: Some are resilient. The investigators will test whether an on-line program focused on enhancing social relationships for people in mid-life can increase the odds that those with a history of a troubled childhood will not suffer a greater loss in mental and physical health than those without those histories. The investigators findings will bring the field signific...
This study evaluates the effect of a physical exercise + caregiver skills training on feelings of burden, mood, and biological markers of inflammation in persons who provide care for Veterans with a TBI or dementia. Half of the caregivers will participate in a balance and flexibility + caregiver skills training program, while the other half will participate in a moderate/high intensity aerobic and resistance + caregiver skills training program.
The Center for Mind -Body Medicine has developed a mind-body skills group program that incorporates meditation, guided imagery, breathing techniques, autogenic training, biofeedback, genograms, and self-expression through words, drawings, and movement. These mind-body skills are designed to increase self-awareness and self-regulation. This program has been shown to significantly improve depression symptoms in children and adolescents with posttraumatic stress disorder in Gaza, ...

The intervention uses process drama modified with OT and SLP techniques and using typically developing peer models. Feasibility outcomes are recruitment rates, retention rates, daily program records of ease of implementing program, and record of modifi...
