Teaching SEL Skills that Promote Resilience in Children
Presenter: Stephen N. Elliott, Ph.D.
Student resiliency is a characteristic necessary for the development of a healthy, adaptable outlook. This attribute enables children to emerge from challenging experiences with a positive sense of themselves and their futures. This session focuses on providing educators strategies and practices needed to assess and support the development of specific social emotional learning (SEL) skills that promote resiliency in children and youth. The featured SEL skills in this session are asking for help, getting along with others, expressing feelings, being positive about the future, and saying when there is a problem. The steps and resources from the SSIS SEL Classwide Intervention Program (CIP) needed for teaching and evaluating these skills will be illustrated.
