All the participants in the two groups responded to the scale of the positive relationship with others and Student Adjustment before and after the experiment. The students of the experimental group received cognitive social skills training for 10 weeks, (2 hours per week). Finally, the obtained results were analyzed by univariate and multivariate covariance analysis using SPSS software.

As well as the results of univariate covariance analysis to determine the effect of the group on the level of positive relationships with others in the post-test and follow up was statistically significant (P<0.05). Also, the findings indicated that the intervention effect on the variables in the follow up stage was invariant.
