About this item

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is the development of a set of skills based on self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. When implemented, SEL can reduce problems such as bullying and promote young people's well-being - yet, despite research clearly revealing that children achieve greater success when their SEL needs are met, it is not an area of focus in most current education systems.

Your Child's Social and Emotional Well-Being helps parents and education professionals to foster SEL in homes and classrooms, and to collaborate where appropriate. The authors offer simple strategies and easy-to-follow exercises that can be adapted to the needs and abilities of children aged 4-16. For each strategy, the text includes an explanation of how it works, a list of common materials needed, and a suggested script. The authors also introduce innovative ways to teach SEL, such as computer-assisted instruction, and provide a list of recommended resources such as books, articles, games, and online sites. Together, these resources offer a complete guide for anyone interested in helping children develop positive attitudes to education and to each other, and in placing learning in a context of supportive, meaningful relationships.
