Social and emotional learning (SEL) is about developing the ability to care for others, make responsible decisions, establish positive relationships, and handle challenging situations. These skills are essential for developing resilience and the personal attributes that promote wellness, prevent illness and support recovery.
Modules in this domain will provide educators with an in-depth understanding of SEL and why it's important for mental health and wellbeing. Further, they will provide educators with an understanding of how to intentionally teach SEL skills, and foster resilience in education settings.
It will cover key skills for resilience, respectful relationships, and help-seeking. The modules will also address how to create an empowering environment for children and young people to foster independence and responsibility in everyday learning contexts, experiences and activities.
