SEL Research & Evaluation
Elizabeth Devaney, Director, SEL Center at Children’s Institute, co-edited this volume, Social and Emotional Learning in Out-of-School Time: Foundations and Futures, that defines and explains SEL in a variety of out of school contexts; frames SEL through the lens of high quality youth development practice; shares information about current trends and new developments; makes research to practice connections; and offers recommendations for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers related to SEL in OST settings.

New York State's new mental health literacy curriculum is now in effect for the 2018-19 school year. As it has rolled out, there has been some confusion about whether social and emotional learning programs, curricula, strategies, and practices are enough to satisfy this new law.
At the SEL Center, we are often asked what social and emotional skills look like at different ages and stages. What should a Kindergartener be able to do? How much can a 5th grader actually handle? Is this appropriate behavior for a high school senior?
These are the moments.
Childhood is a series of moments when a little help can go a very long way. These are the moments that set the course for a lifetime of health, productivity, and even joy. And these are the moments that determine a community's future. Subscribe today to stay up-to-date with the programs, training, and initiatives at Children's Institute.
