Social Skills

social-anxiety-innerSocial skills are strategies utilized for effective communication and interaction with others. Individuals with social skills deficits may feel the urge to join conversations, but experience difficulty maintaining conversations or even knowing what to say. Feeling unable to experience relationships in this context may lead frustration, isolation from others, sadness, and anger. Social skill deficits can also make it difficult for an individual to communicate their wants and/or needs, which can also result in frustration, anger, and disrupted relationships.
