Improving first Impressions: social skills training for people with cognitive impairment
A step by step manual for remediating social skills
Description: ‘Improving first impressions’ is an empirically tested manualized program for social skills training. Designed for people with acquired brain damage, this program is based upon well-established behavioural principle for reinforcing positive social skills. The difference is that this program is designed specifically for people who have poor new learning and difficulties with executive control. Consequently, it is suitable for any client group where the improvement of social skills is an important target but the participants may have cognitive impairment.

The manual provides step-by-step instructions and is supplemented with detailed handouts to accompany each session.
