Kids CRAVE attention and often times, will seek it and obtain it in any way they can get it.  We need to acknowledge kids need for humor and to help kids gain attention in more positive ways.  My program, Social Theatre (TM) is a fun way to teach social skills in real time, with the use of improv and sketch comedy.  Through improv and collaborative sketch writing, children and teens participate in the process of learning how to work together in creating humor. Social Theatre (TM) draws from theories of Theory of Mind, Social Thinking®, Assertiveness Training, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

My book is on pre-order status and set to be released on February 21, 2018.  https://www.amazon.com/Teaching-Social-Skills-Through-Sketch/dp/1785928007/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1512097236&sr=8-1&keywords=Shawn+Amador
