Social Emotional Learning Part III

Engagement Description


Helping chidlren distinguish between emotional modulation and behavioral inhibition is one of the most misunderstood and underappreciated aspects of child development. Children need to understand how to self-sooth, temper the intensity of emotion, look beyond anger, and inhibit impulsivity in order to be successful academically and socially. In this engagement we look deep into prevention and intervention with this PSEL. This represents the CASEL core competency of Self-Management.

  1. Define two key terms used in the engagement title.
  2. Generate external supports to help grow internal resources.
  3. Develop interventions based on our assessment of the challenge.
