SEL & MENTAL HEALTH
A New Prevention Paradigm

 

December 12th, 2019

This webinar was part of Rethink Ed's SEL Expert Webinar Series

Threats to education include catastrophic violence, substance abuse, trauma and suicide. If these threats are rooted in mental health instability, then how do we develop an effective and efficient prevention paradigm and what is the role of SEL? In this webinar, we will explore the underpinnings of resiliency through a new lens. Participants will learn about the important elements of risk assessment through targeted research on Social and Emotional Learning and walk away with a deeper appreciation for supporting well-being for educators, students and the organization.
