Exploring the Unique Needs of Teens Who Are Developing Social Self-Awareness
The Social Thinking® Methodology emerged from working with teenagers in high school. It was apparent our students needed help with executive functions and learning how they can learn to help themselves engage in the process of social emotional learning (SEL). Over the years we have developed treatment frameworks, strategies, and tools for helping teens explore how the social world works to help them learn to navigate to self-regulate in that world. During that journey we recognized the challenges of more resistant social learners and explored how we could help them move through their resistance rather than react emotionally to their resistance. We also found it was important to help interventionists (parents and professionals) learn to understand how the expectations within the social world are literally shifting under our students’ feet as they legally grow out of being children and into being considered adults. This series provides some highlights of what we’ve learned about working with teens with SEL challenges for the past 25 years.

Part 2: Choosing Social Strategies to Take Charge of One’s Thoughts, Feelings, and Actions
Series Name: Exploring the Unique Needs of Teens Who Are Developing Social Self-Awareness
Our goal is to help people learn explicitly how to engage in social information processing; how to attend, interpret, problem solve and respond in any situation—the thinking and doing skills that will aid them in becoming increasingly successful in the social world throughout their lives.
At some point we all struggle in social situations. Engaging in a social emotional thinking/feeling based process can be difficult at times for everyone in the social world. Our role as interventionists is to help motivate social learners to "do the work" and explore how we all share social expectations, thoughts, feelings, make mistakes and try again as we learn to navigate our way toward our social goals. The practical nature of our teaching and the concrete way we explain social concepts helps engage people in social learning not only about themselves but about others.
