This introductory workshop will provide an overview of what systemic SEL looks like in a learning environment, discuss core competencies at the elementary, middle, and high school level, cover effective approaches for enacting it at the classroom level, and present recent research that substantiates its importance on a range of outcomes, including academic achievement and behavior. In this session, you will learn about the process through which children/adolescents understand and manage emotions, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
