Event Description
This social-emotional learning webinar will address your frustration with trying to contain and redirect the boundless energy of young people in the library.  You will build a deeper understanding of why youths act the way that they do, and hands-on tools to encourage their best choices.  Additionally, you will discover existing programs that actively and effectively build social-emotional intelligence, and inspiration to develop your own.

Learning Objectives:
  • Following the webinar, participants will be able to describe the origins of youth's behaviors.
  • At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to apply socially-emotionally aware communication tools.
  • Upon completion of the webinar, participants will be able to identify library programs that effectively encourage social-emotional intelligence.
