This webinar offers an overview of the nine skill development areas and three system tools (“Clear Picture,” “On-Track Thinking,” and “On-Track Actions”) that are at the center of the curriculum. We will discuss the system’s application in both individual & group settings, as well as its utility in CILAs & day programs.

  1. Understand the connection between emotion regulation and the successful development of independence skills
  2. List the 9 skill development areas, and at what emotional activation levels they are best put into action
  3. Identify individuals who might benefit from SkillsSystems, and the best modalities (individual, group, programmatic) for helping their clients achieve their goals
