For our March 20, 2018 PTO Meeting (7pm)
Following our regularly scheduled PTO meeting
School Social Worker, Courtney Canario, along with Emotional Regulation Specialist, Susan Constable will present:
"Social and Emotional Learning Supports"
About the Presentation:
This session will cover what is meant by the term Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) as well as the skills and competencies necessary to: understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
This is what is called Emotional Intelligence or EQ. EQ includes a separate set of skills from one’s intellect and these competencies can be learned and measured. This session will introduce and show examples of The Incredible 5 Point Scale, which can be used to help children, youth and adults accurately identify their emotions, understand triggers and use conventional coping strategies when needed. This presentation will also include information about SEL practices at HMS.
Hope to See you there!
