Psychiatric Rehabilitation Consultants (PRC): Consumers and Clinicians-Partners in Empowerment


Social Skills Training for Consumers with Serious and Persistent Mental Illness

From a rationale for the relevance of social skills training to the needs of chronic mental patients, this workshop provides an overview of the various models of skills training developed and validated by the UCLA Center. Videos, "live" modeling and demonstrations, and participant practice are used to promote active directive learning. The competencies needed by mental health and rehabilitation professionals to conduct social skills training are systematically taught in this workshop which can be flexibly designed for different patient or client populations, clinical settings, and durations. Handouts and overhead projections supplement the presentation. Exercises are done at the end of the workshop to assist participants to apply and implement the procedures of social skills training in their home clinical setting.

"After watching a 'live' demonstration by PRC of social skills training with a group of patients with schizophrenia from our local hospital, my three case managers who came to the workshop turned to me and said, 'This is exactly what we need to do with our clients!' We are now integrating skills training into our intensive case management program.'" -  M.S.W., Rochester, New York
