Social and Emotional Learning

Social and emotional learning—the ability to successfully communicate, resolve conflict, interact with others, and manage emotional responses—can help students do better in the classroom and in life. Fostering social and emotional well-being is a key component in improving conditions for learning.

Our Work

AIR's work in social and emotional learning focuses on promotion, prevention, early intervention, and treatment.
