Part of the ABCT Clinical Assessment Series book series (ABCT)


The purpose of this chapter is to provide a brief overview of the assessment of social skills in individuals with substance abuse, substance dependence, or in recovery from a Substance Use Disorder (SUD), for researchers and clinicians with little background in the field of SUDs. The association between social skills and SUDs was first recognized in the literature in the 1970s within the context of alcoholism treatment and relapse prevention, largely drawn from the tenets of social learning theory (e.g., Chaney, O’Leary, & Marlatt, 1978; Monti, Gulliver, & Myers, 1994; O’Leary, O’Leary, & Donovan, 1976). Within the relapse prevention framework, the return to problematic alcohol use, or relapse, may be avoided (or limited) if the individual has the appropriate set of skills to cope more effectively with life stressors and situations that may place the person at risk for relapse (Larimer, Palmer, & Marlatt, 1999; Marlatt & Gordon, 1985). It is asserted that inadequate coping skills decreases one’s self-efficacy to cope
