Beyond SEL: Addressing Mental Health in the Classroom
Behavior issues, teacher burnout, bullying, hate speech… today’s educators now find themselves responsible for identifying which students may need special attention, including which ones are likely to harm themselves or others. Tackling mental health in the classroom can feel overwhelming but most of these challenges can and should be addressed at school, using tools that provide social emotional learning and age-appropriate psychosocial skills training.
We recently hosted a webinar facilitated by Jay Burcham, author of Leaps, and after many requests, we’ve made a recording of the session available here for easy access. Participants will gain a better understanding of how much educators really can do to help students growing up in these complicated times.
