Herb Hein Shares Cognitive Strategies in His Interview with Dan Gardner, M.D.: Learning to Be Successful with the "New Me" After Traumatic Brain Injury
Listen to Herb Hein talk about his experience and advice regarding speech-language-cognitive treatment for traumatic brain injury, in his interview with Dan Gardner, M.D.
A unique, powerful component of the Growing G.R.E.E.N. InterActions Social Literacy Program is that it explicitly provides powerful words that are thoughts we find in our brain to help us make the best choices for ourselves and the other people in our lives. Guiding G.R.E.E.N. Thoughts are integrated throughout the program's lessons and multisensory activities. We learn to survey the scene to see who else is on our Home, Classroom, Friendship or Work Teams and consider our Common Team Goals. We then can read the printed Guided G.R.E.E.N. Thoughts to use "in the moment", reminding us to choose our best words and actions to make positive connection with others.
One of the most useful strategies of the Growing G.R.E.E.N. InterActions Social Literacy Program is to develop mutually beneficial Common Team Goals with the people with whom we interact. We consider that the other people around us are part of our Team, whether it is our Home Team, Classroom Team, Friendship Team, Work Team or even Community Team. With the others on our Teams, we decide what the Common Team Goals might be and write these down so they can be referred to as often as needed so that our individual actions help to achieve them.
We are excited to share our social literacy program with you. Growing G.R.E.E.N. InterActions is an innovative tool to help people become their better selves in a better world.
