Social and Emotional Learning
People of all ages possess the ability to learn and grow and become well-equipped to navigate life’s successes and challenges. The following principles provide the foundation for the work of the Center for the Promotion of Social and Emotional Learning (CPSEL).
- Social and emotional programming positively affects a broad range of student social, emotional, health, behavioral and academic outcomes
- Social and emotional skill development in youth has lasting outcomes through adulthood
- Safe and supportive educational environments that are trauma-sensitive and responsive nurture social and emotional, ethical and academic skills
- Character development helps young people become responsible, caring and contributing citizens and should be an integral part of social and emotional learning
- Families play a crucial role in helping children become confident and independent individuals and learners
- Long-term change in social, emotional and character development is achieved when educators, families and community members work together as partners
- Adults serve as important role models for children and can positively affect social and emotional competence by engaging in their own lifelong social and emotional skill development
