Series Name: The Power of Emotions: Strategies to Fuel Self-Regulation, Learning, and Communication

This third part of our four-part series on the power of emotions explores how emotions are embedded within academic standards. Social emotional navigation is a crucial ingredient for teamwork, both in school and in the 21st-century workforce. Practical strategies about perspective taking accompany the social investigation into how each child, student or client reads each other’s intentions, what each individual wants from the other as they relate, and how collectively, individuals sync their emotions as part of our narrative language . This is a fascinating day! As you learn to help the individuals you live or work with, you will also learn a lot about yourself.

Detailed Description

Who should attend

In this third part of our four-part series, learn strategies to help your students, clients, or patients develop awareness of how emotions are part of our everyday activities, such as reading comprehension of literature, teamwork, and how we express ourselves through our language. While people tend to focus on emotions only with regard to emotional self-regulation, in this training we explore how emotions are embedded throughout our daily existence. Discover a variety of strategies that can be used immediately in the classroom, at home, in the community, and at work spanning these topics:

  • Social language is about sharing emotional experiences
  • Reading comprehension of literature requires emotional attunement and emotional attunement is embedded in academic standards
  • The skills CEOs seek in the 21st-century workforce have more to do with social emotional problem solving than achieving high test scores
  • How negative emotion sharing encourages positive relationship development
  • How to use magnets to encourage students to consider why it’s worth the social risk to reach out and relate to others
  • The use of the Social Evaluation Survey to help explain what we want from each other when designing treatment plans
  • How sharing data is perceived differently from sharing emotional experiences
  • Emotion-syncing strategy to visually display the journey in conversational storytelling
  • What’s emotions got to do with reading each other’s intentions?
  • Why is social communication like the game of chess?

In our final and fourth part of our four-part series on emotions, we explore the power of emotions in producing anxiety, as well as practical strategies students can learn to help themselves to avoid feeling hijacked by social anxiety. Strategies are presented for teaching students social competencies, which are a critical aspect of helping students learn to manage their social anxiety.

Who Should Attend

The Social Thinking Methodology is used by a wide variety of professionals; including speech-language pathologists, special and general education teachers, social workers, counselors, clinical and school psychologists, occupational therapists, behavior specialists, and school administrators to name a few. It’s also used by family members and caregivers across settings.

About this Series

The Power of Emotions

In our four-course series on emotions, explore how they are the undercurrent of all forms of social communication and are at the heart of personal problem solving, motivation, relationships, and life memories (episodic memory). Emotions help us make meaning in context and make connections with others. On the flip side, our emotional experiences can be confusing and anxiety producing. Throughout this series, metacognitive strategies and insights are infused with user-friendly reviews of research to pinpoint the science that helps us learn concretely about the abstract social emotional mind. This information can be applied to all children, students and clients, as well as those considered neurotypical. However, attendees will find the strategies can be of significant help in teaching those with social emotional learning challenges (e.g., autism spectrum levels 1 & 2; social communication disordered, language learning challenges, twice exceptional, ADHD, head injured, etc.). Engage in hands-on activities and explore the use of treatment scales and frameworks to help your students, clients, and patients unpack the social emotional experience and understand how emotions take center stage in all aspects of life.

The four different courses in the series The Power of Emotions: Strategies to Fuel Self-Regulation, Learning, and Communication:

Part 1: Helping Students Gain Perspective on Their Emotions
Part 2: Learning about Shame, Pride, and Pathways toward Social Emotional Self-Regulation
Part 3: Emotions Guide Meaning Making and Language to Relate
Part 4: Learning to Manage One’s Anxieties while Developing Social Competencies

Throughout this series, you will learn a lot of practical information and strategies to assist teaching your students, clients, and patients; you’ll likely find that you can personally relate to the information, as well.
