Abstract: This paper describes a model for the conceptualization of social skills necessary for the vocational success of people with schizophrenia. Based on this model, a two-part measure was developed and validated to assess social skills necessary for job search and tenure. The measure consists of a 10-item self-administered checklist and a role-play exercise. The self-administered checklist measures clients' perceived competence in handling work-related social situations. The role-play exercise assesses the social skills necessary for job acquisition and maintenance in two simulated situations (participating in a simulated job interview and requesting urgent leave from work). Furthermore, a social skills training module has been designed, which enhances vocational outcome and fills a gap in the existing, commonly used modules. A pilot study shows that the training module together with appropriate professional support afterward is effective in enhancing the social competence and vocational outcomes of persons with schizophrenia. Implications for cross-cultural applications are discussed.
