We all recognize that students learn best when presented with engaging materials. And, as clinicians, we do our best work when our students are enjoying and finding value in their sessions – when we know what we are doing is making a difference. Integrating carefully selected animated videos into our individual and group sessions helps our students understand the complexities of emotional and social interaction. Starting with discussions about characters, we can move to supporting our students in self-reflection, as they think and talk about their own experiences. Observing how characters face challenges and then practicing in our supported sessions gives our students opportunities to grow their resilience.
After reviewing the literature supporting using animated videos for social and emotional learning, we will spend the majority of our time together in a “deep dive” about how to pair specific animations with recommended activities. We will focus on how to build student understanding of “size of feeling,” as well as abstract concepts such as flexibility, cooperation and tolerating mistakes. Multiple examples will show how to move from working with and discussing a concept in a video, to practicing that same concept in our individual or group sessions. Always wanting to mediate learning, we will discuss how to develop and integrate various visual supports (including continuums) into our work.
We will finish with a discussion of how to write goals focusing on emotions and social cognitive processes. We will review information and templates explaining how to write relevant, measurable, rubric-based goals that evaluate student growth relative to change in themselves, rather than in comparison to neurotypical norms and expectations. Audience members will leave prepared to immediately begin integrating animated videos into their clinical work, as well as an understanding of how to set goals and evaluate growth.
