The goal of this study is to examine the overall efficacy of A Social Interaction Skills Training (ASIST) intervention in facilitating community participation and social integration among adult participants with major burn injury, and its efficacy for racial and ethnic minority participants and white participants. The objectives are to assess the effect of ASIST intervention on outcome measures in comparison to historical controls that had little to no access to social skills training. Anticipated outcomes include increased community integration and social participation in ASIST participants and decreased disparity in community reintegration scores among racial/ethnic minorities when compared to their White counterparts. The anticipated products include educational materials and a standardized and validated approach to social skills training post-burn injury with a validated process of adapting program content according to participant feedback.
