Importance of SEL Groups
We are currently offering Social Emotional Learning groups to school age youth in academic and recreational settings. Social emotional learning helps youth develop empathy, identify their feelings, manage their emotions, strengthen relationships, and more effectively and responsibly solve problems and make decisions. Our groups provide a safe space for youth to feel comfortable and supported as they learn about, process, and practice social emotional skills. We have found that these groups allow youth the opportunity to have the time and space necessary to be able to learn and share in a meaningful way, which promotes a positive sense of self worth and contributes to healthier overall wellbeing.
