Supporting Social Emotional Learning in Young Children

By:

Chivonne Pierotti, Vail Inclusive Preschool

Description:

What is Social Emotional Learning? Social emotional learning is the process by which children learn to understand and manage emotions, maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. It is a complex process that involves the integration of a child’s thoughts, emotions, and behavior in order to develop competence in these five areas:

  1. Self-awareness – Having an accurate perception of ourselves and being able to recognize our own emotional states.
  2. Self-management – The ability to use self-awareness to handle stress and impulses, as well as persevere and consider options for dealing with feelings in a way that’s socially accepted.
  3. Social awareness – The understanding of our relationships with others, and the development of respect and acceptance of others who may be different than us.
  4. Relationship skills – Mastering the complexities of relationships involves becoming aware of others, being attuned to the emotions of others, and understanding the impact of our actions on others.
  5. Responsible decision making – The ability to make a decision about what actions or responses we’ll choose in reaction to our emotions within the context of our relationships with others.
