Review:

Taking a slice of life and breaking it into its component parts teaches the learners to similarly analyze other situations they encounter. This ability to identify, sort, sequence, and respond enhances students' abilities to learn from experiences, to cope with whatever life throws at them. --Linda E. Albrecht, Journal of Correctional Education

Skillstreaming the Adolescent provides a crisp, concise description of a psychoeducational intervention strategy for young people manifesting withdrawn, aggressive, or immature behavior. --Harold D. Grotevant, Contemporary Psychology

If you are working with adolescents who are struggling with developing healthy social skills, this book may be for you. In Skillstreaming the Adolescent, Goldstein and McGinnis have developed an excellent revised resource book of substance and style toward helping adolescents in and out of school settings. The book's focus is a practical, real life-skills curriculum devoted to helping older middle level and high school youth with a variety of skills ranging from very basic to advanced levels. --Topper Steinman, AIMS Newsletter, Association of Illinois Middle Schools
