Abstract in Portuguese
Esta pesquisa teve como objetivo estudar a relação entre mudanças na competência social e no peso em dois adolescentes obesos. Os casos foram atendidos individualmente dentro do modelo de terapia comportamental e os dados obtidos foram descritos em forma de estudo de caso. Os clientes foram avaliados em relação às mudanças ocorridas através de diferentes escalas e inventários e de categorias de comportamento criadas pela pesquisadora para observação e análise do processo terapêutico. Para os dois clientes ocorreram ganhos referentes à competência social. Em relação ao peso, um cliente apresentou uma forte relação inversa com competência social no decorrer do tratamento e perdeu peso. O outro cliente precisou de um tratamento mais longo mas apresentou no final do tratamento (últimas 10 sessões) uma tendência semelhante. Os resultados também indicaram que ambos desenvolveram estratégias de comportamento para lidar com os aspectos aversivos do ambiente relacionados à obesidade, apontando para a necessidade de associar essa modalidade de tratamento que enfoca o desenvolvimento da competência social a outros procedimentos utilizados nos tratamentos de perda de peso.

Abstract in English
This research evaluated the relationship between changes in social competence and weight loss in two obese adolescents. Both cases were treated with individual behavioral therapy and the results were presented as a case report. The clients were evaluated by changes obtained on different scales and inventories, as well as by the analysis of behavioral categories created by the therapist. In this analysis, both clients were observed to improve in terms of social competence. One of the clients demonstrated a significant inverse correlation between improvement of social competence and weight loss during treatment (16 sessions) and lost weight. The other client required longer treatment (40 sessions), but also demonstrated at the end of intervention, the same tendency of results. Based on this evaluation, it was postulated that behavioral therapy targeted to issues of social competence should be an integral part of treatment for weight loss, and should be combined with other therapeutic modalities.
