Social Emotional Learning, SEL, is the process of learning social and emotional skills. It is just as important as learning math, reading, writing skills and more. Social and emotional skills are essential for success in all areas including school, work and life. SEL helps students learn to manage their own emotions and behaviors, have empathy, solve problems, maintain healthy relationships and more. Now more than ever, our students need our support in helping them get through these unprecedented times. Whether they are learning remotely or they are in school, we need to give them the right tools to help manage their emotions and achieve positive goals. Through this course you will learn strategies on how to help your students recognize and self regulate their emotions to prevent impulsive behaviors. You will also help them identify emotions they see from others which will help them empathize and show compassion towards others. Doing so will help them get along more positively with others while building healthier relationships.
