Details This study investigated the effects of a class-based social skills training (SST) for junior high school students on their social skills and psychological stress responses to determine variance depending on the degree of the student’s sensitivity to punishment. The results of ANOVA indicated significant improvements for all groups. (a) For pro-social skills, small to medium effect sizes were shown. (b) For overall social skills, small to medium effect sizes were shown. (c) For psychological stress responses, small to medium effect sizes were shown. These results suggest that it may be possible to enhance the efficacy of SST by conducting such a training after group characteristics, such as sensitivity to punishment, are assessed.
