What are psychosocial skills?

Psychosocial skills allow us to interact with, perceive, influence and relate to others. Psychosocial skills include our ability to appropriately experience, display and perceive emotional states and relate these to the events and environments where they occur. Psychosocial skills must work together with our communication skills to enable us to interact appropriately with other individuals and function within a socially meaningful context. If a person has trouble recognizing when another person is happy, irritated, angry, sad etc. or has trouble experencing these feelings then their interaction with others is likely to be poor and sometimes inappropriate.
