Timothy Shriver on “Social and Emotional Learning and Its Impact”
Social and emotional learning (SEL) is defined as “the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.” As Board Chair of CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning), Tim will speak about the history of SEL, the work of CASEL, and the profound impact that SEL has on children’s and adults’ lives.
