Social and emotional learning (SEL) is 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.
“The work we do in SEL must actively contribute to antiracism by always using a lense of equity. SEL can help people move from anger, to agency, to action. Through finding and sharing your voice, you can move from anger to agency. From there you begin building your moral courage that moves you to action, where you can face challenges and execute on goals.” – Karen Niemi, President & CEO of CASEL
CASEL is an organization that supports educators with evidence-based social and emotional learning.
