In behavior therapy social skills are learned behavior that allow people to achieve social reinforcement and to avoid social punishment[1] Behavior analysts prefer to use the term behavioral skills to social skills.[2] Behavioral skills training to build social and other skills is used with a variety of populations including in packages to treat addictions as in the community reinforcement and family training approach.[3] Training of behavioral skills is also used for people who suffer from borderline personality disorder,[4] depression,[5] and developmental disabilities.[6][7] Typically behaviorists try to develop what are considered cusp skills,[8] which are critical skills to open access to a variety of environments.
