Facilitator Reproducible Activities for Groups and Individuals
Social skills constitute more than a time-honored list of modern manners; they are ways to thrive in today’s world.
In this workbook, Teens – Social Skill Strategies, teens learn by doing, from each other, and through thought and feedback. Real life comes to the classroom, group room or individual space as teens practice new skills and begin to change negative behaviors. Awareness of societal expectations, empathy, ethics and altruism are not taught but are lived, through simulated and actual situations. Verbal and non-verbal communication, social graces, the desire to fit in, diversity, inclusion, finding and being a friend, family relationships, forgiveness, first love, breakups, humanitarianism and other topics are featured. Social issues, including abuse prevention and other topics are addressed.
Active learning occurs as teens consider social life and social consciousness through interactive games, introspective drawing and writing, mock videos, role plays, panel discussions, press conferences, through drama, music, pantomimes and other activities.
Seven Chapters, four to ten sessions per chapter, (total of forty-seven) encompass the following:
1. Communication
Body language, personal space, behavioral cues, active listening, conversations, first impressions, communication starters and stoppers, assertiveness and negotiation skills.

2. Expectations
Technology, social networking, mealtime, introductions, first dates, events, travel, condolences, diplomacy, job interviews, work relationships and sportsmanship.

3. Fitting In
Parent/caregiver issues, excessive people pleasing, acceptance of self and others, respectful disagreement, shyness, positive personality traits, newcomers, diversity and multicultural contributions to society.

4. Friendship
Positive peer support, non-aggression, frenemies, influence of words and actions, friendship lyrics, envy and jealousy, and helping a person in crisis.

5. Family
Traditional and non-traditional family styles, changes at home, sibling rivalry, respect for authority without fear or rebellion, and forgiveness.

6. Teen Love
Healthy and unhealthy relationships, parent/caregiver concerns, first love, expression through art and poetry, dating dilemmas, breakups and power principles.

7. Caring
Empathy, social causes, creative fundraisers, ways to help at home, school, community, etc., advocacy in action, leadership as a passion to serve versus self-serving power.
