SEL Consulting Services
Neuroscience indicates, human beings are social and emotional beings and when we are in environments that positively address those needs, our potential is maximized. Therefore when in high stress, high threat environments our potential and even desire become stifled. Attention of and intention to develop the social and emotional skills can have positive impacts on academic performance, staff retention, climate and culture, and personal well-being. We are eager to apply our experiences of working with leaders to integrate SEL to leaders throughout the nation.
Expanding on our two-day SEL workshop, we provide a five-day workshop series (facilitated throughout a school year/semester) to teams (10-30 participants). This series provides the content, coaching strategies and strategic planning time necessary for implementing and integrating social and emotional learning opportunities throughout the working and learning day as well as the K-12 experience.
We also work with leaders interested in designing systems and structures to address the below recommendations set forth in a 2019 report released by the Aspen Institute:
Set a vision for student success that prioritizes the whole child.
Transform learning settings so they are physically and emotionally safe and foster strong bonds among students and adults.
Change instruction to teach students social, emotional and cognitive skills; embed these skills in academics and schoolwide practices.
Build adult expertise in child and adolescent development.
Align resources and leverage partnerships across schools, families and communities to address the whole child.
Forge closer connections between research and practice to generate useful, actionable information for educators
