These are integral parts of the school counselor’s job. This is social emotional learning (SEL). So, how do we accomplish this in our schools? In this session we will briefly explore what SEL is, why it’s important, and how it connects to comprehensive school counseling programs as we take a deeper dive into specific strategies and resources you can use in your school to foster social emotional learning and intelligence.
