Workshops

Social Thinking Workshop!

Social Thinking® is dedicated to helping individuals from four through adulthood to develop their social competencies to meet their personal social goals. The Social Thinking Methodology is designed for use with students who have solid to high-level language and academic learning skills.

Michelle Garcia Winner, founder of Social Thinking, specializes in the treatment of individuals with social learning challenges. She will be our speaker for the workshop and will be providing explicit information on how the social mind works, why it is important to teach social competencies and not just social skills and ways in which we can better assess and provide treatment strategies for students with social emotional learning challenges.

DAY-1, Saturday – 21st September 2019

Delve into the mind of a person with social learning challenges! Our Social Thinking Informal Dynamic Assessment includes four unique assessment tasks, shown through video, to uncover how individuals process and respond to social information in real time. Learn about Social Thinking’s treatment* pathway, strategies to improve social competencies to use in treatment plans and/or at home, and tips for working with different types of social learners. Explore two core Social Thinking frameworks and strategies to use immediately: Social Behavior Mapping and the Friendship Pyramid along with related ideas for expanding treatment using these tools.

*Treatment refers to using conceptual and strategy-based frameworks to help individuals improve their social skills and competencies.

Day-2, Sunday – 22nd September 2019

Learn more than 20 Social Thinking strategies and three core treatment* frameworks to guide students, clients, and patients to better attend, interpret, problem solve, and respond to social information. Help individuals 1) observe and respond to situations based on the context and determine the “expected” behaviors of each situation, 2) learn core Social Thinking Vocabulary and concepts to encourage social-communicative competence, and 3) discover strategies for teaching self-regulation, executive functioning, emotional understanding, and theory of mind/perspective taking. Work in teams to develop lesson plans to implement new strategies in the home, clinic, or classroom the very next day. People love this hands-on, engaging course!

*Treatment refers to using conceptual and strategy-based frameworks to help individuals improve their social skills and competencies.
