Abstract
This work presents the results obtained with a therapeutic social skills group
for adults living with intellectual disabilities and psychiatric co-morbidities. The
concept of social skill is used in cognitive behavioral therapy approaches. For
the last four years in the community psychiatry unit within the department of
psychiatry of mental development, we have organized social skills groups. These
groups are meant for ambulatory patients with intellectual impairments and
psychiatric co-morbidities in conjunction with a lack of social skills. Each patient is
under individual cognitive behavioral therapy treatment, which makes it possible
to precisely evaluate the issues and the patient's expectations. In addition to
the individual sessions, the patients participate in a monthly semi-open selfaffirmation
group. Each patient completes a variety of questionnaires and scales
which serve as a baseline, as well as questionnaires at the end of each session to
provide information about the dynamic of the group and its progression
