The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of interpersonal problem-solving training on social skills and self-esteem of slow-paced adolescents. This study was conducted through a quasi-experimental research with a pretest-posttest and a control group design. The statistical population included all slow-paced girl students in 2019 year in Shahriar City. From among these, 30 students were selected and randomly assigned to the experimental (n=15) and control (n=15) groups. Social Skills Rating System- teacher forms (SSRS) and Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (SES) were used as dependent variable measuring tools. The participants of the experiment group received the interpersonal problem solving intervention program in 10 sessions for 60 minutes. The obtained data was analyzed using Multiple Analysis of Covariance (MANCOVA). Results indicated that the intervention had statistically significant effects on enhancing cooperation, assertiveness, self-control and overall social skill (P<0.05), as well as improving the self-esteem (P<0.05) of the students in the experimental group. According to the findings, it can be concluded that interpersonal problem-solving training can be effective in enhancing social skills and self-esteem of slow-paced adolescents.
