EASTCONN Where Learning Comes to Life

EASTCONN and Rutgers University Present Two Social-Emotional Learning Workshops

Educators, school administrators, mental health professionals and community leaders are invited to attend two October workshops that explore approaches to social-emotional learning that can benefit schools and communities.

Presented by EASTCONN and Rutgers University, the workshops will take place at EASTCONN’s Conference Center, 376 Hartford Turnpike, Hampton, Conn. 

The first workshop, “The Leader’s Guide to Systemic Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Implementation,” will take place on Tues., Oct. 8, 2019, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participants will build an understanding of the importance of SEL competencies and learn how to create organizational and school infrastructures in order to implement and sustain positive SEL changes.

“Foundations of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) and Character Development,” will be offered from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on both Tues., Oct. 29, and Wed., Oct. 30, 2019. This 2-day workshop will lay the foundation for providing direct instruction on social-emotional learning and character development (SECD) competencies in classrooms, community groups and after-school settings. After attending the workshops, participants may also complete an online,18-week practicum to earn their SECD certificate.
