About Michelle Garcia Winner

 

Michelle Garcia Winner is a speech and language therapist (SLT) who specialises in the treatment of students with social cognitive deficits at the Social Thinking Centre, her clinic in California.

She coined the term “Social Thinking®” in the mid-1990s and continued to evolve the Social Thinking framework that today includes information, vocabulary, curriculum, and strategies that help individuals with social learning challenges become better social thinkers. Her years of experience demonstrated that lessons taught through Social Thinking could apply across a range of disorders that extended well beyond ASD, to individuals with ADHD, nonverbal learning challenges, as well as those with head injuries or emotional learning challenges.(read more)

 

To date Michelle has written or co-authored over 40 books on Social Thinking. Her work is being applied not only to persons with higher-functioning autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, ADD/ADHD, and related disabilities, but also more broadly to students in mainstream classrooms and to adults in vocational and professional settings in the U.S. and abroad. In 2008, she was awarded a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition for developing this treatment approach.

 

 

Day 1 - 20th May 2019

 

Conference:

Emotions Part 1: More Than You Think and All That You Feel

 

Speaker:  Michelle Garcia Winner

 

In this first course in our two-part series on emotions, Michelle Garcia Winner, the founder of Social Thinking, will examine how emotions are an ever-present undercurrent that influence so much of what we do, including our ability to do group work, social problem solving, relationship building—they even impact our life memories (episodic memories) and fuel our motivation to tackle goals. Discover why negative emotions tend to take centre stage and often become barriers to personal and academic achievement—and strategies to break the cycle. Throughout the day, participants will engage in hands-on activities and practice using practical treatment tools to help individuals unpack and manage their emotions, express themselves, understand others’ emotions, and strengthen interpersonal social communication.

Speaker: - Michelle Garcia Winner

 

In this second course in our two-part series on emotions, Michelle Garcia Winner, the founder of Social Thinking will explore how emotions play a large role in relationship development and interpersonal communication.

Delve into case studies to explore how to help individuals who have experienced school phobia, social anxiety, low motivation for social learning, and weak social problem solving. Explore the use of Scales to get an individual’s perspective and evaluate anticipated risks associated interpersonal communication.
