The behavioural intervention Sociaal-Cognitieve Oplossingen Leren (Social-Cognitive Solutions Training) (So-Cool) is an individual behavioural intervention for young people aged from 12 to 18 years (with an extension up to 23 years)1 with an IQ of 50-85 who commit offences and have deficiencies in social problem-solving skills. The main aim of So-Cool is to reduce recidivism among delinquent young people with a mild intellectual disability (MID). The intervention is based on the Social Information Processing Model (SIP) and focuses on increasing social skills and social problem-solving and self-confidence. The training can be imposed by the juvenile court or the prosecutor as part of a training order. The question that is central to the evaluation is:
Is the So-Cool behavioural intervention implemented as set out in the programme instructions? What are the possible bottlenecks in the implementation and what are the underlying causes of these?
