Self-Confidence. Self-Direction. Empathy. Teamwork. Critical Thinking. These kinds of social and emotional competencies equip young people to thrive in and outside of the classroom, regardless of economic, cultural, racial and gender divides. This presentation shares a rationale for making social and emotional learning an educational priority in the United States. Dr. Roger Weissberg will share recent research and proven strategies of how families, schools and communities are strengthening social and emotional skills as an essential part of every young person's education.
