Social Thinking Workshop – Hobart Tasmania – Friday 22 February 2019  

If you have any questions or need assistance registering, you can call us on (02) 5105 5262, we are happy to help.

Topic:  Implementing Social Thinking Concepts and Vocabulary: A Day to Develop Team Creativity

Presenter:  Michelle Garcia Winner

Our Tip:  This is the perfect workshop to give you the best overview of Social Thinking.  It’s meaty enough to give professionals who use the Social Thinking methodology additional training and it’s the best introduction to those interested in using the approach.  This is Michelle’s most popular workshop she presents in the USA.

Added Bonus:  We are limiting ticket sales to 100 participants seated at tables.  We are doing this to make this workshop an intimate experience, enabling participants to have as much opportunity as possible to interact closely with Social Thinking’s founder, Michelle Garcia Winner.  A rare opportunity!

Workshop overview:  It’s time to get practical!  Using Social Thinking’s Social Competency Model, learn to guide individuals to better socially attend, interpret, problem solve and respond to social information.  Explore how to teach three core treatment-based frameworks and more than 20 unique strategies based on Social Thinking Vocabulary and related activities.  You will learn how to teach students to better interpret and respond to their social world by making smart guesses to discover hidden social rules.  You will learn systematic and logical ways to encourage social responsibility by learning about our own and others’ social thinking.  You will explore how our thinking about a situation and what we know about others can help us create the expected behaviours that support our relationships.  Finally, you will learn how we make these abstract concepts more concrete by reviewing a variety of activities through clinical examples.

Motivational developmental tools such as our We Thinkers! Early Learner curricula for 4-7 year-olds, You Are a Social Detective! and Superflex… a Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum will also be reviewed to help participants see how these materials teach key lessons.

Participants will work in groups to learn how to use Social Thinking concepts to create their own lesson plan.  We explore how to make lessons applicable across a variety of environments and focus on enabling students to apply these lessons in their lives.  Most lessons are further explained in the book Think Social! A Social Thinking Curriculum for School-Age Students (Winner, 2005), which is used in schools around the world.

What You Will learn

Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe why the context or situation is key for figuring out social expectations and related social skills.
  2. Describe the core steps of Social Behavior Mapping to help teach social responsibility.
  3. Define at least five (5) Social Thinking Vocabulary concepts.
  4. Describe how Social Thinking Vocabulary concepts facilitate generalization across settings.
  5. Describe the difference between sharing an imagination and a singular imagination and their relationship to conversations and reading comprehension.
