Executive Functioning: The Social Emotional Implications and Getting Unstuck

Saturday, April 29th, 2017

  Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre, 181 Roundhouse Mews Vancouver, BC V6Z 2W3

The Learning Disabilities Association of Vancouver is proud to bring together Dr. Charmaine Miranda and Dr. Kallista Bell from Compass Clinic to provide insight and support into the world of Executive Functioning.

Executive Functioning is often understood as the manager function of the brain. When we think manager, we think organizing and planning. However, there are social and emotional implications to executive functioning deficits. These can include a tendency to speak or act without thinking first, difficulty imagining and weighing consequences, and “rigid” or sticky thinking. Students with EF deficits often get labelled as “stubborn” or “black and white thinkers,” and their mistakes can be misunderstood as more intentional than they really are. In this talk, we will describe executive functioning and talk about the social-emotional implications as well as discuss some strategies for getting unstuck and learning to stop and think.
