What is social coaching?  Who are peer mentors? These questions and more are answered here in our resources section.

SOCIAL COACHING

Social coaching is the teaching of how to behave socially, social behaviours such as conversation skills, managing emotions, empathy, forming friendships and maintaining them, sportsmanship, managing rejection etc. Research tells us that social behaviour can be learned through observing, copying, practising, repetition and role-play.

 

The beauty of training the social brain is that it can be approached from so many different angles, and the more that are tried, the stronger the neural connections will become. Individuals with different social brains can improve their behaviour by seeing something done properly, hearing it, walking through it, and acting it out in various situations.
