SEL from a Distance for Teachers and Families


12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Type

The pandemic and subsequent switch to distance learning combined with recent instances of racial injustice have put a spotlight on the cracks in the practice of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). Join best-selling educational authors Drs. Jessica and John Hannigan and learn how to implement SEL into a virtual, blended, or in-person environment for educators, students, and our children!

Participants will learn:

  • The five SEL competencies and how to implement the easy to use tools and processes for building skills in each
  • How to identify challenging behaviors and prioritize, define mastery, and teach the SEL skills necessary to address them
  • To utilize the SEL tools and processes right away

The session is ideal for principals, teachers, building leadership teams, guidance counselors, intervention specialists, social workers, and even parents who may find the SEL tools helpful in working with their students remotely.
