Social and Emotional Learning: Tools to increase student engagement in the classroom

Often children who have experienced trauma have a difficult time engaging in structured learning and therapeutic environments. These include setting such as schools, childcare centres, group programs, home, occupational and speech and language intervention etc. Enhancing a child's social and emotional skills can lead to improved friendship, family relations, self- regulation abilities, academic and educational outcomes, including attendance, engagement, and ability to process academic tasks/activities. School is a prime place to foster social and emotional maturity, and the relationship between a child and their classroom teachers can play a significant role in the healing process. By including social and emotional learning in the classroom it can positively alter a child learning and life trajectory.

PM session: 1:30pm - 4:00pm
