Introduction: Psychological capital is one of the important constructions of positive psychology. The present study was designed to determine the effectiveness of social skills training on psychological capital and its components among Tabriz university students who had referred to counseling centers during a year.
Methodology: Thirty cases who had referred to counseling centers in 2011-12 were selected as participants. After participants completed the psychological capital questionnaire (PCQ) as a pretest, they were randomly assigned to either the experimental group for social skills training (SST) (15 persons) or the control group. Multivariate analysis of variance was used to analyze the data.
Results: The overall results suggest that social skills training has an effect on the all components of psychological capital (resiliency, hope, optimism, and self-efficacy).
Conclusions: As predicted, social skills training improves students' psychological capital.

Keywords: Social Skills, Psychological Capital, Resiliency, Hope, Optimism, Self-Efficacy
