In this scene from "Easy A" (2010) a high school student is facing a difficult issue caused primarily by a rumor she started about herself that has grown out of her control. She's been called into the guidance counselor's office and is genuinely seeking help, but the counselor's poor listening skills leave Olive uncomfortable sharing the truth and the problem only escalates.

"When you're a kid, school is your career. And if you go out of business in school, if your business goes bankrupt, if you're not having any success, you're left with almost nothing. You are poverty-stricken. Where do you go from there?“
-- Dr. Mel LevineFounder, All Kinds of Minds
Social skills and/or life skills are behaviors that need to be taught and practiced until the skill can be exhibited fluently and appropriately (Lane et al., 2005).
Skills for Success is a program developed by the Orange County Human Relations Councilthat focuses onthe requisite skill that all students should possess and include both social and academic components to help students achieve success both at school and beyond (OCHR, 2012).
Teaching these skills is an essential, yet overlooked part of student success. Around the world, Life Skills-Based Education (LSBE) is being adopted as a means to empower young people in challenging situations (Life Skills, 2012).
LSBE refers to an interactive process of teaching and learning which enables learners to acquire knowledge and to develop attitudes and skills which support the adoption of healthy behaviors(Life Skills, 2012).
