Description

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process children, youth, and adults go through to develop the skills to engage with others, manage their emotions, show empathy, handle stress, set goals, make responsible decisions, and in the long run to succeed in work and life. Social and emotional learning can improve students’ academic performance, decrease problem behavior, and increase college and career success. 

This project is in the process of preparing 10 issue briefs that summarize the current research and identify practice and policy implications of social and emotional development in children.The collection of resources is for teachers, parents, schools, policymakers and others to support the social emotional development of young people.
