Foundations of Social and Emotional Learning (2-part ONLINE workshop)



Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility


The workshop URL will be in your confirmation email.

During these challenging times, the best way to support one another and your participants begins with understanding the foundations of social-emotional learning.  

Do you strive to create the healthy conditions for your students to learn? In this 2-part virtual workshop, after school staff  will deepen their understanding of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and why it is crucial for promoting positive development in children. Participants will engage in hands-on activities and collaborate in small groups to learn the foundational skills of SEL that can help guide their decision-making process and support their students and programs. Participants will gain skills that they can implement immediately in their programs to build connection and promote a positive sense of community for students to grow.  

Important Note: This workshop was previously titled “Fostering Healthy Fun Learning for Children with Social Emotional Learning (Grades K-5)” & “Supporting Middle School Students through Social and Emotional Learning (Grades 6-8)”
