Research has linked social and emotional skills to success in school, workforce, and overall wellbeing. Recently, the national Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Challenge studied and developed recommendations regarding helping adolescents develop these vital skills.

The SEL Challenge focused on these key areas of emotional learning: emotion management, empathy, teamwork, initiative, responsibility, and problem solving. Within this workshop, we will discuss practice implications and program recommendations around each of these themes. We will also focus on key youth experiences and staff behaviors that support this learning. Finally, participants will be able to self-assess their programs against the SEL Standards.

Class size is limited to 45.
