This research investigated the relationship between social skills groups and the promotion of adolescent friendships in girls. All participants were identified as lacking social skills and having no friends. Each week of group focused on a different social skill and included a skill-basked activity. Each participant rated their social skills and capabilities by completing a survey developed by the researcher during the initial group session in a pre and post test. Results indicated that participant’s social skills increases by the final group session. The discussion focuses on implications for further research as well as limitations to this research.
