Abstract:

Joint Attending and Social Referencing (JA/SR) most often involves two or more people simultaneously attending to the same constellation or elements of an environmental event. As a critical "learning-to-learn" repertoire, JA/SR is an important foundation for learners to acquire and master. By definition, JA/SR is a social phenomenon; however, it is also solipsistic in that joint attending may occur within the individual as a fusion of "speaker/listener" repertoires that allow for self-referencing and self-talk that guides what an individual attends to at any one time. This panel will present a draft taxonomy of JS/SR intended to formalize and categorize the variables responsible for the emergence and growth of JS/SR competencies throughout a person's lifetime.

Instruction Level: Intermediate
Target Audience:

Practitioners who are interested in how to organize and delivery effective programming to develop extended joint attending and social referencing repertoires in their clients.

Learning Objectives: To reference and locate individual joint attending/social referencing programs within a taxonomy of functional relations that influence the emergence, generalization and application of such skills in a progressive, organized manner.
