Earn a Certificate in Instruction for Social-Emotional and Character Development

June 19-20, 2019 | Center for Schools and Communities, Camp Hill, Pa.

Hosted by Center for the Promotion of Social and Emotional Learning (CPSEL) in partnership with Rutgers Social-Emotional and Character Development Lab, this two-day training – comprised of course 101 and 102 – can lead to a certificate in instruction for social-emotional learning and character development (SECD).

These unique, non-credit courses offer educational staff, school mental health professionals and those working in afterschool programs the opportunity to acquire a foundation of knowledge and research about the relationship between academic achievement and development of social-emotional competencies; build SECD skills and mindsets students need to be socially and academically successful; develop skill in pedagogical strategies to integrate SECD principles, skills and concepts into all aspects of teaching; engage fellow educators and group leaders to be reflective in their practice and understand the relationship between self-learning, classroom practice and student learning; and demonstrate the ability to initiate and operate an SECD-friendly classroom or group (before, during or after school).
