Developing social and emotional skills builds a foundation for everyone’s success. Social and emotional skills include understanding and managing oneself, relating to others, and making responsible choices. Social and emotional skills are associated with improved behavior, lower levels of emotional distress, enhanced wellbeing, improved academic outcomes, and more stable employment. Social and emotional skills can be taught, practiced, and strengthened in everyday interactions in schools, at home, in workplaces, and community organizations. Students, educators, families and community members use social emotional learning (SEL) every day.
