Social Behavior Mapping Template Poster - Dry Erase Surface
Social Behaviour Mapping is a strategy described in detail in one of our core books on Social Thinking, Thinking About You Thinking About Me, and also in the book Social Behaviour Mapping: Connecting Behaviour, Emotions and Consequences Across the Day. The purpose of a Social Behaviour Map is to help students learn how each behaviour they do has an emotional impact on those around them, and that how a person feels contributes strongly to how s/he reacts to another person's behaviour. As individuals learn about the thoughts–feelings–behaviour connection, the final lesson is ultimately that how we feel about ourselves is related to how other people treat us.
The dry erase surface on this poster provides repeated opportunities for teachers to explore this connection with different students and across different social situations and contexts. (Only use dry erase pens on the poster.)
A Social Behaviour Map gives educators an interesting and engaging teaching tool to discuss sometimes tricky or delicate situations with students. It visually demonstrates the link between their expected behaviours and the positive emotions of others, which contribute to positive consequences for the student, ultimately helping the student feel better about him or herself. It also helps students link their unexpected behaviours and negative emotional reactions and related consequences from others, impacting negatively how the student feels about him or herself. Many of our students are able to see expected and unexpected behaviours in others but struggle with recognizing and understanding how their own behaviours affect others. A perfect tool to link social concepts together in a concrete, visual manner!
