Responsive Practices to Support SEL

We can design programs to support social and emotional learning (SEL), but we can also be more intentional about how we respond in the moment to SEL skill-building opportunities.

This interactive workshop helps participants practice strategies to respond to unplanned opportunities, integrate cultural responsiveness, and support SEL through everyday conversations and unexpected challenges. Participants will talk about cultural values and preferences, role-play different scenarios, explore SEL-related dilemmas and reflect on their programs.

How it works

What you’ll have when you walk away

Who should attend
