Description

Social skills are defined as any competence that facilitates interaction and communication with other individuals where social rules and relations are created, communicated, and changed in verbal and nonverbal ways. Factors such as family, school, or integration into social groups can affect the development of students’ social skills. Through group counseling, students can not only gain a sense of community among peers, but also begin in developing important social skills that can be carried throughout adulthood. The purpose of this literature review is to provide useful insights into the role of group counseling to develop students’ social skills, as well as a way to expand teacher’s’ knowledge around the topic of group practices and collaborative learning. After analyzing different studies on the topic, it can be concluded that group counseling can raise social competence and impact the development of students’ social skills.
