Part 1: Helping Students Gain Perspective on Their Emotions

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

In this first part of a four-part series we explore how our emotions are central to our social competencies, executive functions, and self-regulation. Emotions are our brain’s powerhouse; they can help fuel motivation or derail us. We investigate how negative emotions are processed differently than positive emotions and how emotions are the cornerstone of each person's memories, both good and not so great. Learn strategies to help students unpack their daily emotional experiences.

Detailed Description

Who should attend

We all feel, but are rarely taught much about our emotional selves. In this first course in the series, explore information and practical, research-based treatment* ideas that help interventionists and their students, children, or clients better understand themselves as emotional beings. During this three-hour course, some of the many topics explored with depth and humor include:


  • The difference between feelings and emotions
  • How feelings and emotions constantly shift throughout a day
  • How the brain processes negative emotions differently than positive emotions
  • Humans beware—we tend to have a negativity bias!
  • How memory is impacted by the power of our emotions
  • How emotions are tied to executive functions
  • The difference between taking perspective and getting perspective
  • How emotions are embedded within the Social Thinking®–Social Competency Model
  • How to use a visual framework to organize and learn about one’s daily emotional experiences
  • The use of manipulatives to guide individuals to express their feelings and experiences and to socially problem solve when language falls short

The information gained from this course will seed the knowledge you need for exploring more complex self-conscious emotions, as well as for building treatment programs to actively teach students to emotionally self-regulate, which is covered in the next course: Part 2: Learning about Shame, Pride, and Pathways toward Social Emotional Self-Regulation.


*Treatment refers to using conceptual and strategy-based frameworks to help individuals improve their social competencies.


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.
