Translating Knowledge of Social-Emotional Learning and Evidence-Based Practice into Responsive School Innovations
Stoiber, Karen Callan
Journal of Educational & Psychological Consultation, v21 n1 p46-55 2011
As the number of children engaging in problem behaviors grows, teachers increasingly report feeling unprepared to effectively meet students' mental health needs. Social-emotional learning (SEL) should be a prominent goal of school programs because social competence prevents school failure. This commentary reviews the challenges associated with implementing and researching school-based SEL programs, examines the current state of the evidence-based literature on SEL, and comments on the companion articles that appear in this Journal of Educational and Psychological Consultation special topic section.
