Research Press Publishers is excited to announce the publication of Social-Emotional Learning Lab: A Comprehensive SEL Resource Kit. The SEL Lab is a skill-teaching intervention program to help K-5 students succeed in all aspects of the classroom. It supports counselors, educators, and after-school program providers in teaching individual students the skills needed to establish a positive social, emotional, and learning environment. The book includes an implementation manual, tutorials, a decision-making guide and more than 100 downloadable lessons, worksheets and handouts to assist instructors in the step-by-step process of initiating and implementing an SEL Lab in your setting.
Authors Victoria Poedubicky and Dr. Maurice J. Elias have created a curriculum designed to complement and enhance any program that addresses both self-awareness and social skills by focusing on self-control, cooperative skills for working within groups, problem-solving, decision-making, and everyday skill application. The SEL Lab can also function as a “stand-alone” in schools where there are no social-emotional programs being implemented.
Praise for the SEL Lab: “This practical guide is a wonderful, informative resource for those who want to promote the social and emotional learning and character development of elementary-school children in one-on-one or group sessions. Educators and counselors who implement this book’s activities will develop greater expertise in teaching young people to be more caring, responsible problem solvers who handle daily interactions and life challenges more effectively.”—Roger Weissberg, Chief Knowledge Officer, Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL)
