Addressing the Needs of the Whole Child …
Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) is more important now than at any other point in American history. Suicide rates are at an all-time high and mental health issues are growing countrywide.
Though often overlooked, mastering SEL strategies is essential for students. Having such a foundation in social and emotional knowledge helps students engage in more meaningful, lasting, and successful endeavors than those who lack such a foundation. As for the schools where it’s taught, SEL leads to a reduction in bullying and disciplinary action and an increase in motivation and performance.
Success is not a temporary event, but a lifelong process of nourishing our self-worth and self-confidence. When promoting strong mental health in children, the positive results are limitless. The rewards translate to happy families, strong communities, and superior schools.
