Responsive Practices to Support SEL

See this page in: English

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.

  • Support SEL through everyday conversations and unexpected challenges.

Who should attend

Direct service providers and program leaders, managers and coordinators who have previously attended SEL in Practice or have a solid understanding of SEL basics.

Participants can expect to

  • Explore your cultural values and preferences in relation to SEL skills.
  • Engage in role-play scenarios to practice responsive skills.
  • Talk about SEL-related dilemmas with colleagues and reflect on what you've learned.
  • Understand the relationship between identity, culture and SEL success
  • Get ideas about how your own cultural values and preferences shape the way to support SEL with youth
  • Learn strategies to recognize and respond to unplanned SEL skill building opportunities
