The Thinking about YOU Thinking about ME book explores the critical nature of perspective taking (Theory of Mind) in our day-to-day interactions and its importance in the classroom setting. It describes how the perspective taking process works and offers a myriad of therapeutic activities for teachers/therapists to utilize with children and adults. Michelle Garcia Winner explains how professionals can use informal measures (since no standardized measures are available) to assess the abstract skill and to determine which students will benefit from this type of treatment. Included are strategies that help students understand their own treatment programs (IEPs) and behavior plans. The book covers contents presented in her workshops, "Nuts and Bolts of Starting Social Thinking Programs", and " Thinking about YOU Thinking about ME".
