Social decision-making and problem-solving skills are essential to sound growth and development. This practical procedural guide shows how school- based social competence programs can improve children's self-control, social awareness, group participation and interpersonal decision-making skills and help prepare them for their role as socially competent, responsible, and productive citizens. Based on more than 12 years of action research with the Improving Social Awareness-Social Problem- Solving project (ISA-SPS), the Elias-Clabby model provides school-based practitioners and practitioners-in-training with a framework for designing, implementing, and evaluating social competency programs. Skill-building procedures include instruction designed to help students decide on their goals, understand their own and others' feeling, and think in terms of long- and short-term consequences for themselves and others. An eight-step problem-solving and decision-making strategy allows professionals from a variety of backgrounds to easily grasp points and generate applications relevant to their own settings and circumstances. Includes guidelines for selecting a school site, as well as detailed procedures for training staff and parents.
