Abstract

Of social skills training en self-esteem in adolescent foster youth utilizing the 10-item Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale. The subject for this research was a 17 years old African American male in foster care.

This study hypothesized that social skills training, framed in cognitive restructuring, would increase the subject's level of competence, (efficacy) and would result in a heightened sense of self-esteem.

The findings of this study concluded that social skills training was effective in increasing overall self-efficacy and self-esteem. The length of time, for cc baseline and intervention might have yielded different results.
