Abstract: This article describes a prospective blinded outcome study of a vocational social skills training program developed in Hong Kong for people affected by chronic schizophrenia. The aim was to improve their ability to find and keep a job. Participants were randomly assigned to three groups: a social skills training group with followup support, a social skills training group without followup support, and a comparison group who received standard after-care treatment. Participants who had participated in either of the training groups statistically outperformed those in the comparison group. Those receiving the training plus followup were statistically much more successful at finding and keeping a job than participants in either of the other two groups. A comparatively small amount of followup contact (a monthly group meeting or phone call) for 3 months after the training finished had a very significant effect on participants' success rate.
