Abstract
What's happening around us influences our thoughts, feelings, and responses. Social Situation Mapping (formerly Social Behavior Mapping), a core teaching framework within the Social Thinking Methodology, uses visual templates to encourage learners to engage social observation for figuring out what to do and say (or not do and say) based on a particular situation: where we are, who is present, and what is happening. The maps also outline a fundamental teaching framework we call the Social Emotional Chain Reaction, which shows how we all impact one another when sharing space. The maps are meant to be taught from the perspective of the student or client to provide options for what to do or say in common situations. We encourage educators, therapists, and parents to jointly generate unique maps alongside the student or client based on their individual goals.
Revised, retitled, and updated with our most current teaching, Social Situation Mapping includes:
- 80+ completed Social Situation Maps (SSMs) to explore 40+ practical everyday situations that happen at school, home, and in the community.
- Maps with blank spaces for students to add their own ideas and observations.
- Maps with options to honor neurodivergent choices or strategies. Some options are also inclusive of learning differences and/or disabilities.
- One blank map template that can be photocopied and used again and again. The completed maps within this book can also be used as guideposts as learners generate their own maps and figure out a path through the lens of their social goals or desires.
- A description of the Social Emotional Chain Reaction (SECR), the foundational concept taught in Social Situation Mapping.
- The 10-Step Visual Fidelity and Teaching Guide.

Abstract
Dr. Delahooke offers a radical new approach to parenting based on her clinical experience as well as the most recent research in neuroscience and child psychology. Instead of a top-down approach to behavior that focuses on the thinking brain, she calls for a bottom-up approach that considers the essential role of the entire nervous system, which produces children's feelings and behaviors.
When we begin to understand the biology beneath the behavior, suggests Dr. Delahooke, we give our children the resources they need to grow and thrive?and we give ourselves the gift of a happier, more connected relationship with them. Brain-Body Parenting empowers parents with tools to help their children develop self-regulation skills while also encouraging parental self-care, which is crucial for parents to have the capacity to provide the essential ?co-regulation? children need.
When parents shift from trying to secure compliance to supporting connection and balance in the body and mind, they unlock a deeper understanding of their child, encouraging calmer behavior, more harmonious family dynamics, and increased resilience.

Abstract
Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren?t attention-seeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren?t passive, permissive pushovers. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach to parenting.
Throughout this compassionate, insightful, and practical book, Dr. Greene provides a new conceptual framework for understanding their difficulties, based on research in the neurosciences. He explains why traditional parenting and treatment often don?t work with these children, and he describes what to do instead. Instead of relying on rewarding and punishing, Dr. Greene?s Collaborative Problem Solving model promotes working with explosive children to solve the problems that precipitate explosive episodes, and teaching these kids the skills they lack.

Abstract
This book tackles children's feelings of anxiety around current events and what is portrayed in the news. Scary news is an inevitable part of life. This book can support and guide efforts to help scary news seem a bit more manageable for young people.
Whether from television news reports, the car radio, digital media, or adult discussions, children are often bombarded with information about the world around them. When the events being described include violence, extreme weather events, a disease outbreak, or discussions of more dispersed threats such as climate change, children may become frightened and overwhelmed. Parents and caregivers can be prepared to help them understand and process the messages around them by using this book.
This book provides a way to help children put scary events into perspective. And, if children start to worry or become anxious about things they've heard, there are ideas to help them calm down and cope. This book also helps children identify reporters' efforts to add excitement to the story which may also make threats seem more imminent, universal, and extreme.
Read and complete the activities with your child to help them to understand the news in context - who, what, where, when, how - as a means of introducing a sense of perspective.

Abstract
Kids of all ages have some important questions about how their bodies work?and why their parents and other adults have some strong ideas on what needs to get done every day in order to stay healthy. Children often hear:
"No more screen time!"
"Eat your vegetables!"
"You can?t have cookies for dinner!"
"You need to take your medicine!"
"Wash your hands! With soap!"
"It?s getting late! Get ready for bed!!"
In this book, Dr. Nina L. Shapiro embarks on an amazing journey through the body as it gets fed, protected, exercised, cleaned, energized, and rested. Each chapter provides kids with age-appropriate explanations and illustrations that address their very good questions about their bodies and health with solid (and fun!) science-based answers. By receiving an in-depth understanding of what it means to be healthy, strong, clean, rested, and energized, kids will soon be able to make smart decisions on their own.
The human body is incredible, and the science behind how our bodies work, how the world affects our bodies, and how our bodies affect the world around us is pretty cool, too.
Recommended for children ages 6-10
