The (W)hole Student: Social Emotional Learning & Youth Mental Health
April 29 at 4:30-6pm ET
Many students experienced family problems or emotional struggles even before pandemic-related closings disrupted the routine of learning in schools with trusted teachers and alongside peers. Now as many students return to school, they must deal with unfamiliar rules and often sporadic attendance by their friends. Social Emotional Learning, trauma-informed teaching practices, and awareness of youth mental health are crucial to enabling students to learn, grow, and thrive. Free resources on these topics will be shared. Register here.
