How Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is Supported through Botvin LifeSkills Training -
Webinar: This webinar is designed to look at the LifeSkills Training (LST) program and the outcomes related to the five core competencies of social and emotional learning (SEL).
Under the federal education law, Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), schools can expand their SEL programs that teach children self-control, to resolve conflicts, and to make responsible decisions and avoid risky behaviors. Research shows that these "soft skills" benefit children for their entire lives and can have a positive impact on schools.
Join us to learn how LifeSkills Training (LST) not only supports SEL competencies but also promotes healthy alternatives to risky behavior through activities designed to teach students the necessary skills to resist social (peer) pressures. LST helps students develop greater self-esteem and self-confidence, enables students to effectively cope with anxiety, and enhances their decision-making and problem-solving skills.
Duration: 60 minutes
