What is Social Emotional Learning?

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and makeresponsible decisions.   (CASEL)

Why SEL integration into Schools?

Research shows that integrating SEL and trauma-informed practices into schools leads to better social emotional skills, improved attitudes about self, improvement in classroom behavior, and increased academic scores on standardized tests, as well as decreased conduct problems and substance abuse. The COVID-19 pandemic has further underscored SEL as an essential part of high quality education - highlighting our relationships, resiliency, and collective problem solving as fundamental to teaching and learning and the creation of more inclusive and equitable learning environments.
