SEL for Adults
Inspire Educators, Strengthen Communities
Second Step® SEL for Adults Is Now in Development
Committee for Children is developing a stand-alone program designed to strengthen K–12 leadership and staff knowledge about social-emotional learning (SEL) and deepen their social-emotional skills. Educators play the most meaningful role in a child’s social-emotional development outside of the family. That’s why our researchers, educational designers, and instructional designers have partnered with leaders in adult education to build a program to empower every adult in a school with the skills they need to create a positive learning environment. We expect this program to be available for purchase in 2021.
Resilience During Crisis—We’re Here to Help
Current events have brought uniquely stressful challenges for adults and kids alike. As part of the development of our upcoming Second Step® SEL for Adults program, we’re releasing a prototype learning resource designed to help educators and their students cope with and recover from the negative effects of extreme stress.
In this prototype module, you’ll learn:
- What resilience is, and how to nurture it daily
- How to support and empower colleagues under stress
- Strategies and activities to support students during a crisis
