Combating Loneliness and Misbehavior

Blue Download ButtonDownload this free visual with practical ideas for initiating social conversations, which Michelle Garcia Winner presents in this brand new course.

 

Loneliness is a dangerous national epidemic that has been growing in depth and complexity for many years. Loneliness not only endangers our mental and physical health, but it also can make us less kind and caring toward others, resulting at times in misbehavior at schools and within our communities. We’ll explore a range of research-informed ways we can cultivate meaningful relationships with others to foster our well-being, as well as kindness, empathy, and generosity of spirit toward others. Now more than ever, building social awareness, managing anxiety, and developing social communication strategies to combat this growing crisis of loneliness is critical for school-age children, tweens and teens, and all the way through the adult years.

Emotional Regulation

What’s Alexithymia? and How Does It Affect Emotional Regulation and Awareness?

Understanding One’s Feelings to Foster Emotional Regulation at School & Home

What is alexithymia? It refers to challenges in developing awareness of one’s feelings, identifying, and distinguishing them from other physical sensations—and it’s gaining interest in the research, schools, and clinical arenas. Educators and parents have reported an increase in overall “regulation” challenges in the classroom, on the playground, and during small group activities. We’ll highlight select key aspects of emotional awareness and regulation and its role in perspective taking. Specifically, we’ll explore how alexithymia can impact the building blocks for spontaneous perspective taking across all contexts. We will suggest practical strategies to increase awareness of feelings within the perspective-taking process to use within the classroom, school, community, and home.

Social Life Skills

5 Critical Life Skills for Tweens, Teens and Young Adults

That Often Remain Untaught

Tweens, teens, and young adults are expected to naturally develop social and organizational competencies needed in school and across their lives. However, students with social learning and organized thinking differences (e.g., ADHD, twice exceptional, expressive receptive language, sensory processing, autism spectrum levels 1 and 2, etc.) may not intuitively learn these concepts and skills. This course will explore 5 critical life skills related to social emotional learning and organized thinking that can and should be directly addressed and taught to students & clients ages 11-22 in our homes, schools, and clinics. We’ll also review a variety of explicit metacognitive frameworks and practical strategies for teaching and learning these critical social competencies.

Conversation & Social Connection

Small Talk & Conversations

Strategies to Demystify Conversational Complexities

We can, however, increase our students' awareness of why we engage in social exchanges such as small talk. In this online course, we will unpack the complexities of small talk and conversation. We’ll break these down into their component parts to build strategies that support engagement in initial and ongoing social connection for children, teens, and adults.

Friendship & Relationship Development

What’s a Friend, and Do I Really Need Friends?

Tips & Strategies to Make and Keep Friends, Unpack Social Dislikes & Manage Social Anxiety

The ability to make and keep a friend is something most of us take for granted. However, when it’s hard to make a friend or a friendship dissolves into dislikes, it’s important to have metacognitively based concepts and strategies to help us engage to meet our own personal goals. In this livestream-recorded online training, we’ll unpack different aspects of peer-based relations, from friendship to dislike, and provide practical strategies and perspective-taking activities to encourage student motivation to continue to develop increasingly complex relational social competencies as they age.

Self-Regulation

What’s It Mean to “Behave”?

Tips, Tools & Strategies for Teaching Students Self-Regulation

When what a student says or does (actions or reactions) is out of sync with what the group is doing, they’re often labeled as a “behavior problem.” We’ll rethink “behavior problems” by teaching lessons that promote development of social competencies, including the power of hidden expectations, as well as other self-regulation strategies for use in the classroom, playground, and home.
