What is SEL?
Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
This is such a vital part of growing up and yet it is often missed in our educational programs. IEE's coaches are here to help! We offer trainings that range from 1 hour to 2 days. Let us give you the tools you need to bring positive character back into our schools.
