Mindful Practices: Everyday SEL for Adults

Intuitively, we understand that educators cannot fully teach what they cannot model. That’s one reason educator social-emotional competency is vital to any successful school-wide SEL program. Through mindful practices and self-reflection, you will develop the skills and knowledge required to strengthen your social-emotional competency and create positive, supportive learning environments for yourself and your students. This course is the first in a series on SEL for Adults and is designed to set the foundation for your SEL journey.

In this course, you will:

  • Explore how strengthening your social-emotional competency can benefit your personal life and the lives of your students.
  • Learn about the four SEL implementation focus areas (i.e., self-awareness, self-regulation, social awareness, and balance between self-efficacy and social harmony) and how to incorporate these focus areas into your teaching practice.
  • Develop practical strategies for self-care and maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
  • Reflect on what fills you up (energy replenishers) and what drains you (energy expenditures).

This course is offered in partnership with mindful Practices. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy policy.
