Using Outdoor Learning to Augment Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Skills in Young People with Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (SEBD)
Price, Alan
Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, v19 n4 p315-328 2019
Under-developed social and emotional learning (SEL) skills limit educational progress and make it difficult for children and young people with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD) to form effective relationships with peers and ADULTS. This paper focuses on an SEL intervention set within an outdoor learning context. The research was practitioner led and used an action research (AR) approach to implement and evaluate the SEL intervention. Research participants (aged 12-13 years) were recruited from a UK special school and were all considered to have SEBD. The paper provides evidence for the specific SEL skills that participation in outdoor learning can enhance. The evidence suggests that outdoor learning can be an effective approach for educators wishing to augment the SEL skills of young people with SEBD.
