Emotions Part 2: More Than We Think and All That We Feel

Providers Conference

Saturday June 22, 2019

Emotions Part 2: More Than We Think and All That We Feel

Ages 5-80

Last year Michelle Garcia Winner presented her brand-new course Emotions Part 1—here’s your chance to expand your knowledge on this critical topic by attending Emotions Part 2! In this full-day keynote, Michelle will expand on the concepts introduced in Part 1 and explore how thinking socially requires the consideration of others’ thoughts and feelings, as well as our own in order to successfully navigate conversational exchanges, self-advocate, and socially problem solve interpersonal dilemmas. She’ll also explain how the ability to interpret others’ emotions are embedded within academic standards, and why this is critical for the development of 21st-century work skills. Explore strategies and concepts to help clients, patients, and students who have experienced school phobia, social anxiety, low motivation for social learning, and/or weak social problem solving. Related treatment strategies will be explained and practiced in audience breakout activities. Come learn how to help others and enjoy learning about yourself as well!
Description

In this second course in our two-day series on emotions, Michelle Garcia Winner will explore how emotions play a large role in the social-interactive process and in relationship development. Examples include greeting someone in the hall, developing relationships for teamwork, creating social networks and longer-term friendships, etc. Emotional intelligence is also embedded in academic standards worldwide. Explore many strategies that can be used immediately in the classroom, at home, and at work related to these topics:


  • Social anxiety disorder (SAD) and autism spectrum disorders:
    • The overlap and need to focus on developing social competencies
    • What to be aware of with regard to depression and sadness
  • Social-emotional learning
    • Validating the social-emotional learning process, as individuals explore their social vulnerabilities
    • Recognizing the power of one’s inner critic and coach
    • Learning through a case study on a student’s tracking of his emerging social operating system
  • The social-evaluative process: accounting for each other’s intentions
  • Interpreting the hidden emotional messages of others
  • Your personal self-marketing campaign: what message is your face sending?
  • Using scales for many different reasons:
    • Evaluating social risk
    • Helping students evaluate their own social-emotional experiences
    • Getting a student’s perspective
    • And more
  • Case study: working with a school-phobic student
  • Relationship development and social-emotional competencies
    • Avoid starting with conversational skills! Instead, try identifying little acts of positive kindness; these can go a long way toward relationship building
    • Using emotional syncing to share our experiences in a manner that is interesting to the listener
    • The emotions behind adding thoughts and asking questions to others
    • Using physical manipulatives to encourage a social-emotional reappraisal of people in a context
  • Social-Emotional Chain Reaction: Introducing three levels of teaching Social Behavior Mapping
  • If time permits, personal problem solving:
    • Learning through a case study of an adult engineer in a Silicon Valley company
    • Using the game of chess as an analogy for the social evaluation process inherent in social communication
    • Getting stuck on the negative: reframing how negative moments can be part of positive experiences

To maximize your learning, we recommend attending the course Emotions Part 1 before attending this course.


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