The Benefits of a Holistic Approach

Decades of research show the positive effects of classroom-based SEL programs for children, and there’s also broad recognition that benefits are even greater when children experience SEL throughout their day. When implemented holistically, SEL can help you build a stronger school community and support inclusive, equitable learning.
