Social Detective, Superflex®, and Friends Take On Social Emotional Learning: Teaching the Concepts with Fidelity
This two-part seriesis packed with strategies and activities to help your students, clients, and patients learn more about the social world and how to navigate to self-regulate within it. Social Detective thinking, Superflexible thinking, UnthinkaBots (formally Unthinkables), and Thinkables are our backdrop for this teaching.

The foundation of our work provides interventionists (teachers, speech-language pathologists, therapists, clinicians, parents) and social learners with frameworks, tools, skills, and a shared language for understanding the social world. 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 promote well-being.
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 empower social learners with strategies for understanding that 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.
