SEL Term

Social and emotional learning (SEL) practice

Our definition of staff practices includes both staff behaviors (e.g., modeling appropriate use of emotion) and program structures that the staff put into place (e.g., recruitment policy). Youth key experiences (e.g., taking on roles and obligations) point to staff practices and program structures necessary to produce those youth experiences. In this sense, the staff practices and youth key experiences are both included as standards for SEL practices.
