NeMTSS Virtual Summit | Adult SEL

Ruth Cross Senior SEL Consultant and Trainer for CASEL

Families & Schools


Promoting systemic SEL requires adults to continuously engage in their own learning, reflect on their own social and emotional competencies, and have the skills to translate their knowledge to promote collaboration with colleagues, youth, families, and their community. Increasing adult SEL capacity through reflection and by modeling their competencies, adults are better equipped to build supportive and trusting relationships to effectively work with colleagues and students, resolve conflicts, and improve overall school climate. This workshop will examine the process of building a positive and safe school culture by focusing on building strong adult relationships. Practical strategies to enhance the process will be highlighted.
