A societal shift is happening where educators are tasked with not only teaching academic skills, but also ensuring their students have interpersonal skills as they grow and develop. For this reason, social-emotional learning is a hot topic in schools throughout the country. How do we teach these skills while managing students’ mental health and executive function needs? What does motivation truly mean and look like for students? Throughout this seminar, participants will engage in hands-on activities, group discussions, and reflective exercises to deepen their understanding and practical application of social-emotional learning (SEL). We’ll examine mental health, executive function, and motivation as important aspects relating to the core competencies of SEL with the goal of empowering educators with the knowledge and tools to foster holistic student development.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Define and understand Social-emotional learning (SEL) and its 5 Core Competencies
  • Understand how students’ mental health, executive function, and motivation needs can present in a classroom setting
  • Teach students regulation strategies for managing their mental health and executive function needs
  • Create classroom and individual student plans that navigate student needs while promoting their social-emotional growth


This course is appropriate for educators at all levels (elementary, middle, secondary).
