'A landmark book for SEL. It provides an even-handed, scholarly appraisal of the latest research. This major contribution will advance SEL science, improve school-based practice, and benefit many students' -Professor Roger Weissberg, University of Illinois at Chicago



This important new book provides the first in-depth, authoritative and balanced examination of the critical issues pervading Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). The book highlights strengths and flaws in SEL theory and research, and sets the agenda for the next generation of inquiry.



The book investigates key topics such as:


- definitions and conceptualization


- origins and influences


- international policy and practice


- assessment and monitoring


- implementation


- outcomes



It will be valuable to researchers, policy-makers, students, teachers, and anyone interested in the role of schools play in promoting children's social and emotional wellbeing.
