The Social Strategy Group is a ten week program designed for young adults (ages 18 to 22 years) with a variety of social challenges such as establishing friendships, reading nonverbal cues, conversing with others, and overcoming obstacles to dating.

Dr. Leslie Rescorla, CSI Director, recently presented her research on parent-adolescent cross-informant agreement and parent-teacher cross-informant agreement at the Biennial Conference of the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) in Seattle. Her research involves international comparisons of cross-informant agreement patterns in more than 20 countries. Among the striking findings is that, in all 25 societies studied, parents failed to corroborate adolescents' self-reports of high behavioral-emotional problem scores in about 50% of cases and, correspondingly, adolescents failed to corroborate parental reports of adolescents' high behavioral-emotional problem scores in about 50% of cases.
