Social Emotional Learning

SEL (Social Emotional Learning) programs are programs for learning the art of living – which, like art, is also a part of it – and for cultivating a beneficial encounter with internal and external reality. These programs are research-based, currently prevalent in Israel and around the world, and aim to develop emotional (E) skills in students, as well as social skills (S). In this process, students acquire essential skills for the purpose of becoming adults with resilience and mental well-being, with better abilities in personal and social conduct.
Emotional, cognitive, and behavioral skills are embedded in social emotional learning that are grouped into five key areas: self-recognition and self-awareness, self-regulation of emotions and behaviors, social awareness and understanding of the other including cultivating compassion and empathy, cultivating social skills to help maintain healthy and rewarding relationships.
