Aims: The present was aimed to investigate the effect of teaching life skills on social acceptance and Internet addiction in second grade secondary school students in Kermanshah. Method: The research method was quasi-experimental with pre-and post design with control group. Using a multi-stage random cluster sampling, 30 of them were selected as the sample and they were randomly divided into control and experimental groups of 15 subjects. The instruments of this research were Internet addiction (Yang, 1998) and Social Acceptance Questionnaire (Crown & Marlow, 1996). Before the intervention, pretest was performed for both groups. Then, life skills training sessions were performed for 10 sessions of 60 minutes, during the three months in the experimental group, but the control group did not receive any interventions. After the end of the sessions, after-test was performed from both groups. Results: Results obtained from multivariate covariance analysis indicated that life skills training reduced Internet addiction and increased social acceptance in the experimental group (P<0/01). Conclusions: the Life skills training has a significant effect on social acceptance and online addiction.
