Treatment to improve social skills in adolescents

From Centro Integra, located , we carry out the evaluation and intervention of social relationship problems to improve the social skills of adolescents .


Social skills are a set of behaviors that the person learns from childhood, either by observation or by direct learning. Social skills are essential for the adolescent to interact in a positive and healthy way with other people. The greater the variety of social skills the adolescent has, the greater the success he will be able to have in different areas of his life, since these will help him achieve his goals and establish healthy relationships and bonds with others, thus enjoying social relationships.
When we talk about social skills we talk about the adolescent having:
  • Ease of communication with other people
  • Emotional self-control
  • Good self esteem
  • Empathy
  • Assertiveness
  • Know how to listen
  • Conflict resolution


In adolescence, people are better able to process information and be more aware of our own abilities. It is also during adolescence when a set of changes are set in motion that decisively affect the person’s thinking and reasoning ability.

These changes condition the adolescent to face new challenges and situations. If during this stage social skills have not been fully developed or are not stimulated in the correct way, they can become compromised for adult life, that is why it is key to learn them and settle in this evolutionary stage.


Treatment to improve the social skills of adolescents will focus on providing tools to improve those skills that are a little less developed. Based on this, the Psychologist will work with the adolescent at the level of:
  • Know yourself: teach them or enhance skills such as self-concept (differentiate between the image they have of themselves and the one they believe others have of them), improve self-esteem and knowledge of their own abilities.
  • Relating to others: conflict resolution, education in dealing with others, assertiveness, adequately expressing your emotions, active listening or speaking in public.
  • Living in a group: establishing affective bonds with their peers, developing cooperation and collaboration in their groups, respecting and valuing their colleagues, and again resolving conflicts.
