The Social Behavior Mapping book has been around for over a decade, however the teaching around this concept has evolved. This Revised Edition has been updated to introduce the Social Emotional Chain Reaction (SERC), provide updated instructions for completing maps and adds in a 10-Step guide to promote better teaching with fidelity on the part of interventionists.
The Social Behavior Mapping Framework
What’s happening around us influences our thoughts and feelings! Many people don’t intuitively understand how their behavior affects the thoughts and feelings of others. Social Behavior Mapping, one of the most popular treatment frameworks within the Social Thinking Methodology, is a visual support showing the link between a person’s behavior and the consequences they experience. It outlines a fundamental social concept: how we act in a specific 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.
Many of our students are able to see expected and unexpected behaviors in others but struggle with recognizing and understanding how their own behaviors affect others. Social Behavior Maps help students figure out that they have social judgments about others and that others have judgments about them. Social Behavior Mapping makes the complicated process of how we affect each other visual and concrete!
The Social Behavior Mapping Book
This book presents a collection of over 50 Social Behavior Maps that are already filled out for common situations that individuals experience at school, at home, and in the community. Consider these “cheat sheets” when you’re helping someone fill out a blank map. The book also includes a blank map template that can be photocopied and used again and again. This book is designed for parents and professionals to use with individuals of any age. We have found that for those under 8 years old it is helpful to fill out the maps with pictures or graphics instead of written words.
