Social problem solving strategy is a simple intervention to implement and is effective in helping students from late elementary through high-school gain insight and understanding into social situations. Specifically, it can help students to gain some perspective into the feelings of others. It can also help them to better understand the choices they have in particular situations and the consequences of those choices. Additionally, students may gain a better understanding of unwritten social rules.
Students can complete one of the two worksheets or answer the questions from the cue card to gain a better understanding of a situation after they have made a social error. Social problem solving strategy could also be utilized as an antecedent strategy before a time in which a student is prone to make a social mistake.
This strategy is an easy and flexible method to help students to grow from mistakes. I hope you find this resource useful!
