EPSE 561H: Promoting Students’ Social and Emotional Learning in Schools and Communities: Programs and Practices
This practicum course focuses on social and emotional learning (SEL), and programs and practices that promote students’ social and emotional competence, development, and well-being in schools and communities. Drawing on the latest research and theory in child and adolescent development, prevention science, risk and resiliency, and best practices in teaching and learning, students will consider SEL within the cultural contexts in which they occur, emphasizing developmental approaches that acknowledge cultural diversity. This SEL course provides students with information and practicum experiences on many different prevention/intervention approaches from established programs in Canada and the US, and internationally.
