Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) 101
SEL 101 connects the field of SEL to positive youth development, behavior management, character education, and more. Grounded in a dominant framework from the Collaborative for Academic, Social, Emotional Learning, better known as CASEL, the interactive workshop unpacks the “CASEL 5” competencies. Understanding of SEL basics enables youth-serving professionals to amplify what they are already doing to develop SEL competencies and build knowledge and access to resources to integrate evidence-based strategies into their practices. Drawing from guides like Preparing Youth to Thrive: Promising Practices for Social & Emotional Learning and Navigating SEL from the Inside Out: Looking Inside & Across 25 Leading SEL Programs: A Practical Resource for Schools and OST Providers, participants will leave the session with concrete strategies to try. Follow-up sessions will include detailed planning and implementation support for a comprehensive SEL practice plan.
