                                           Social Emotional Learning (SEL)

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) plays an integral part in education and human development. SEL is the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and feelings to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.

Program implementation highlights:

  • Helping to identify that all students’ mental health needs are all different. 

  • Helping to identify that some concerns are mild while others are more severe. 

  • Helping to understand that some concerns are caused by a specific event, such as the loss of a loved one or a breakup, while others are more generalized. 

  • By implementing SEL in schools, students are more likely to learn in supportive environments, establish good relationships with their classmates, and be able to communicate effectively.

  • Social and emotional learning serves as the first step of mental health services because every student can benefit from SEL. All students may not qualify for TDT services but will qualify for SEL support. 

  • Because of this, we can think of SEL and mental health counseling as different steps of mental health services that build upon each other.

  • SEL will help ALL students deal with challenges as they come up.
