The present study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of life skills book training in improving the social skills, problem solving, and self-esteem of female students in Mazandaran province. The research method was experimental and the statistical population included all female students of the first year of secondary school in Mazandaran province. The sampling method was in random cluster sampling. Participants were 144 people that selected from six cities who were eligible and randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. The experimental group was trained once a week for three months during 12 two-hour sessions. Inderbitzen and Foster's social skill (1992), Eysenck 's self-esteem (1979) and Heppner's (1987) problem solving questionnaires were used to collect the data. The results indicated that the self-esteem of the experimental group after training the life skills book in the female students of Babol, Amol and Sari, and the problem-solving skill of the female students of Sari and Babol were significantly different from the control group (p<0.05). However, there was no significant difference between the control and experimental groups in self-esteem of the female students in Neka, Chalous and Tonekabon, and problem-solving skills of the female students in Neka, Babol, Chalous and Tonekabon, and social skills of the female students in all the studied cities (p>0.05). Based on these findings, it was concluded that the effectiveness of life skills book training was different from improving the social skills, problem solving, and self-esteem in the female students of Mazandaran province.
