Resilience & Social-Emotional Learning

Trauma can derail the development of healthy skills in regulating emotions, cognitions, and behaviors, as well as healthy interpersonal skills, which can then compound trauma’s negative effects.

Promoting wellness practices and building social emotional learning competencies of self-management, self-awareness, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making (CASEL, 2012) can help us to be resilient and more successful in achieving our goals in school and at work, and to develop to our fullest potential.
