Social Emotional Learning (SEL) can help individuals develop “soft skills” like problem-solving, critical thinking and teamwork. Many hiring managers say that these skills are as, if not more, important than technical job skills, however, more young adults are entering the workforce without this critical skillset.
Dr. Paul Vermette, from Niagara University, will give participants a better understanding of this “hot button” topic. Attendees will:
- Identify SEL skills personally, and in others
- Explore the differences in SEL skills and how best to utilize them in a diverse society
- Examine the role these skills play in various aspects of one’s life
- Predict the impact SEL will have on the development of a democratic nation and its institutions
P.S -Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions. (It’s basically the process of helping to develop skills to manage emotions, resolve conflict and make responsible decisions.)
