The Social Skills Workbook
by Berthold Berg, Ph.D.

   
The Social Skills Workbook is full of exercises that reinforce concepts introduced in therapy. By practicing "self-talk," children acquire specific skills
perceiving themselves as competent, expecting success in social situations, not worrying, accepting mistakes, and taking credit for success. This workbook is ideal for both shy, socially neglected children, and aggressive, socially rejected youngsters.

The Social Skills Game

by Berthold Berg, Ph.D.

The Social Skills Game is an ideal way to help children acquire social skills. This appealing board game teaches children attitudes and behaviors that promote positive interaction with their peers. It is especially helpful with those who are shy or socially neglected. The game cards focus on four skill areas: Making Friends, Responding Positively to Peers, Cooperating with Peers, and Communicating Needs. Included in the game manual are three inventories that can be used to identify the child's specific skill deficits and select game cards addressing those deficits. Although usually played by the therapist and one or more children, the game can also be loaned to parents for home use.

Social Thinking Skills Puppet DVD
by Berthold Berg, Ph.D.
   
This most engaging component of Berg's social skills program clearly demonstrates the six cognitive-behavioral principles taught by the game, workbook, and story cards. The DVD presents two vignettes for each of the six skills and two scenes (positive and negative models) for each vignette. An accompanying manual provides scripts, so you can easily present the skits yourself if you prefer. Best used in tandem with at least one of the other social skills tools by Berg, this is an ideal introduction to game playing or storytelling sessions, especially for younger children.

Social Skills Story Cards
by Berthold Berg, Ph.D.
 
The Social Skills Story Cards therapeutic tool gently encourages shy and socially rejected children to apply the same cognitive skills addressed in the Social Skills Game. The child makes up stories based on the illustrations and story prompts provided. You then help the child revise the stories to express more socially adaptive attitudes and behaviors. This process fosters a transfer of learning to the child's own experience. Detailed instructions guide you through therapeutic storytelling techniques.
