Whether you are new to SEL or an expert in the discipline, this webinar will provide you with an innovative approach using SEL to build both your own and your students' self-awareness, regulation strategies, and relationship skills so that no student falls through the cracks. Join Carla Tantillo Philibert for a trauma-informed approach to Social Emotional Learning that unpacks the "How To" behind effective school-wide SEL implementation. Learn best practices for supporting all students in every part of the school day, so SEL becomes an ongoing and overarching practice to be cultivated as part of a school culture, rather than the occasional lesson, meeting, or check-in.


Participants will learn be able to:

  • Participants will be able to define and brainstorm what whole-school SEL supports they will need to implement
  • Participants will be able to reflect on how to make whole-school SEL supports that are most effective for self-regulation, relationships, and self-awareness skills
  • Participants will be able to identify the connection between Adult and Student SEL, and why both matter


This session is for all school stakeholders, including teachers, support staff, and administrators.
