What are ways that we can promote social and emotional competence and well-being in children and youth, including their happiness and optimism in this unprecedented time? Recent innovations on social and emotional learning (SEL) in the past decade has seen an abundance of research documenting the critical role that social and emotional competencies, such as self-regulation, empathy, and compassion play in students’ resilience and successful development in school and in life.

This presentation will review new groundbreaking research that has emerged that demonstrates the importance of promoting students’ social and emotional competence and resilience, and describe strategies that translate research into practice. Viewers will be provided with strategies and examples of SEL programs and practices for children and youth. Viewers will leave the presentation with knowledge and skills that can inform educational practices that promote the social and emotional competence, resilience, and well-being of their children and youth.
