Abstract
Young children learn that everybody cries, how crying can help them, and ways they can cope with challenging feelings.
"You cry when you're sad or mad. Crying gets the hurt out." Tears Are Not Forever reassures children that everybody cries and gives them space to cry and experience their "down" feelings.
Sadness and disappointment are common, recurring emotions that children can learn to understand, handle, and grow from. With vivid illustrations and straightforward suggestions, Tears Are Not Forever provides practical advice for coping with these challenging feelings. "Remember, tears are not forever. In a little while, you'll feel better."
A section for adults reinforces the book's message that crying is a natural, normal response to strong feelings and includes tips and activities to help children express and handle their feelings.

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.
