Leveraging the Science of SEL: How to support health and wellness during the COVID-19 Crisis

Emotions matter, perhaps now more than ever before. As we work to navigate our new normal with our families and colleagues and school communities, we can look to the science of social and emotional learning (SEL) for guidance and best practices to regulate our emotions. At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will understand the basic components of SEL, identify helpful and productive strategies to regulate emotions in their socially-distanced contexts, and explore how to incorporate the assessment of emotions in their interactions with family, peers, and students.
