Recognizing emotions in others can be difficult. For clients with psychological disorders as well as developmental disabilities, this can be a challenge. We designed this packet to be focused on recognizing and understanding emotions.
The first activity in this packet will focus on sorting faces based on whether they are smiling. This basic skill is needed to understand facial reactions within a social situation. The next exercise section is correctly naming and placing the emotional emoji on one side of the chart. This may work on a person’s ability to carry visual information from one section to another. Next, your patient will have to remember emotions with individuals expressing them. This may help them to learn how to categorize emotions and be able to recall them later on. The last section focuses on verbally understanding words and how they relate. Your patient will have to sort a list of words into certain categories.
From sorting faces based upon emotion, recognizing emotions, and being able to sort them, we hope your patient enjoys these emotion-centered worksheets today! This packet will be great for individuals with low social cognition skills. Preschoolers and children will also enjoy using this packet.
Included: 19 worksheets and bridging questions.
