Social-Emotional Competence: An Essential Factor for Promoting Positive Adjustment and Reducing Risk in School Children
Domitrovich, Celene E.; Durlak, Joseph A.; Staley, Katharine C.; Weissberg, Roger P.
Child Development, v88 n2 p408-416 Mar-Apr 2017
Social-emotional competence is a critical factor to target with universal preventive interventions that are conducted in schools because the construct (a) associates with social, behavioral, and academic outcomes that are important for healthy development; (b) predicts important life outcomes in adulthood; (c) can be improved with feasible and cost-effective interventions; and (d) plays a critical role in the behavior change process. This article reviews this research and what is known about effective intervention approaches. Based on that, an intervention model is proposed for how schools should enhance the social and emotional learning of students in order to promote resilience. Suggestions are also offered for how to support implementation of this intervention model at scale.
