What’s new in this 3rd edition?
Why this award winner is a Breakthrough?
This guidebook is written in the language of teens, as a “get real” discussion about what really goes on inside the minds of people when we share space together. Adults also use the book while working with students to learn about, discuss, and unravel the social-emotional world of teens and young adults.
Many practical strategies help the reader figure out the roles of making impressions, thoughts and feelings, friendships, and how their own actions and emotions play a role in the give and take of the social world. Who doesn’t think they could improve in these skills and improve their casual to more complex relationships?
From discussing the “ins and outs” of what it means to be a “Social Thinker,” to figuring out texting, dating, the many different levels of friendship, and the many and varied emotions we experience as we relate to others, the authors describe the real world of being with other people. This includes knowing how to use the “social flip” (or social fake) to show interest or stay connected, even when bored! The authors developed this book with the input and feedback from neurodivergent teens and young adults who shared their stories and gave critical feedback. Their input has helped thousands of others learn about the social world in a unique and motivating way.
Parents, teachers, counselors, other caregivers, and even siblings may also find this book compelling, as it provides some “aha!” moments that encourage a deeper discussion about the social world. While we all work on improving our communication skills, few of us know how to talk about the social mind and how to cope in our very social world of the classroom, hanging out, holding a job, chatting on the Internet, texting, and whatever the future holds.
