A dialogue between Pauline perspectives on behavior and the cognitive-behavioral methods used in a children's social and emotional skills group program
Brad W Schwall
This research project provides a dialogue between Pauline perspectives on behavior and the cognitive-behavioral techniques used in a children's social skills group program. The project demonstrates the compatibility of cognitive-behavioral social skill instruction with pastoral counseling for children. The study quantitatively evaluates the program's effect on the child participants' social skills. The scores on the Social Kills rating System (American Guidance Service, Frank Greshem and Stephen Elliott, 1990) that the parents completed after the program increased from the scores on the scale taken before the program suggesting an upward trend in scores, but the results were statistically insignificant.
