Dr. Sáenz presents research that validates the practice of SEL, and he shares two powerful case studies that prove its effectiveness in schools.

  • explain the difference between Social and Emotional Learning and Behavior Management strategies.
  • list five approaches to emotion, including ignoring, inhibiting, invalidating, inviting, and instructing emotion.
