In this workshop, we will explore the importance of partnering with families in supporting social emotional learning (SEL) within the school and home context. The workshop will examine how SEL is defined at your school and how SEL complements a family’s values, priorities, and goals for their child’s development. We will discuss tools to strengthen your current family engagement efforts on the topic of SEL utilizing a bidirectional approach. Techniques such as mindful communication will be introduced as well as strategies to create collaborative relationships between families and schools to best support and enhance a child’s social and emotional learning.
