Extension report Carrie Olson, County Extension Educator SOCIAL COMPETENCIES This is the time of the year for confirmations, proms, graduation, and wedding parties. All of these events usually involve multiple age groups. Social competencies are the skills we use to interact effectively with others, to make difficult decisions and choices, and to cope with new situations. Social competencies is one of the internal asset categories as determined by the Search Institute. The assets in this category deal with three main areas. Learning about your own heritage, culture, and unique qualities, as well as those of others, to further self-understanding and mutual understanding. Knowing how to be a good friend to family members, peers, co-workers, and others in your daily life. Recognizing potentially dangerous situations, planning ahead to avoid problems, and working through differences and conflicts with others nonviolently. Teach your children well. Social competencies don't simply "come naturally" to most young people (or to IIIII most adults, either). Tolerance, negotiation and compromise, sensitivity to others ' feelings and needs, and appreciation of one's own and others' cultures need to be taught and modeled, Good times in groups. Young people develop social skills gradually over the course of childhood and adolescence. For young adolescents in particular, project oriented group activities with their peers are vital opportunities for constructive social learning. Rehearsing for life. Remember your first date, your first chance to drive alone, or the first party you went to where others were drinking alcohol? Young people need help to avoid making impulsive decisions in such situations. We can talk about possible scenarios, point out potential actions and consequenceL and role- play relevant conversations. So remember, as the spring and summer social whirl is upon us, this may to a teaching moment about social competencies. And as always, we should practice what we preach.
