Social-emotional learning is so important for our kids. Unfortunately, I know that many psychologists (myself included) don’t necessarily focus on social-emotional learning during our evaluations or when we think about recommendations for kids. Fortunately, Dr. Evelyn Johnson is here to talk through the ins and outs of SEL. These are a few areas that we cover:
- The history and definition of social-emotional learning
- How SEL is related to mental health
- Cultural Considerations in SEL
- Aperture software and ways to measure SEL
