Social Emotional Learning Part V

Engagement Details


With growing awareness of ourselves and our relationships with others, we can build more rewarding relationships. As we learn to accept and/or improve those aspects of ourselves we consider less desirable, we grow our self-worth and deepen intimacy.  This represents the CASEL core competency of Self-Awareness.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the value of looking inward and how that helps us with self-acceptance.
  2. Explore the barriers to seeing and integrating parts of ourselves we don’t like.
  3. Learn new tools for helping children self-reflect and accept their less desirable traits.
