Social Behavior Mapping – Connecting Behavior, Emotions and Consequences Across the Day

by Michelle Garcia Winner

for ages 8+

Social Behavior Mapping, a core treatment framework in the Social Thinking® Methodology, is a visual template that helps users figure out the hidden social rules of a given situation based on what is happening and the people present. It also outlines a fundamental social concept we call the Social-Emotional Chain Reaction:  how we act in a given situation affects how others feel, how we make others feel affects how they treat us, and how we are treated affects how we feel about others and, ultimately, about ourselves.

Miranda Peabody had no patience for the other students in class and just didn’t understand why they couldn’t be as smart and talented as she was.

The Explosive Child: A New Approach for Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children

$30.00

Author:  Dr Ross Greene

A groundbreaking approach to understanding and parenting children who frequently exhibit severe fits of temper and other intractable behaviours, from a distinguished clinician and pioneer in this field.

Buying Tip: We here at The Social Mind are big advocates for Dr Ross Greene’s approach to behaviour, as Ross says “kids do well if they can do well”.  In this remarkable book Dr Ross Greene explains that at the route of behaviour issues are a kid’s “lagging skills and unsolved problems”.  In this book Ross will not only explain your child/student/client but will give you hope with a productive approach that teaches skills and shows just how ineffective punishments are at changing behaviour.  We believe in this approach so much that we regularly bring Ross to Australia to conduct training in his approach to behaviour.  You can watch Ross on Youtube here and if you read this review and want to purchase the book, use the promotion code Ross for a discount.
