Mindfulness in the Classroom: Integrating Social-Emotional Learning with Mindfulness Practices

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) refers to the process of developing social and emotional skills that are essential for positive mental health, relationships, and academic success. SEL focuses on teaching students how to manage their emotions, develop empathy for others, build healthy relationships, and make responsible decisions.

SEL is typically integrated into school curriculums and programs, and can be taught through a variety of approaches including direct instruction, experiential learning, and peer-to-peer teaching. The goal of SEL is to support students in developing a range of competencies such as self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.
