SEL interventions in early childhood

Resource Type: Other
Author(s): McClelland, Megan; Tominey, Shauna; Schmitt, Sara A.; Duncan, Robert J.;
Date Issued: Spring 2017
Description: In this article, we examine the science behind SEL interventions. We start by clarifying key terms related to SEL skills and reviewing the approaches used in current early childhood SEL interventions. We discuss the theories that guide these interventions, as well as results from intervention studies, including a look at how results vary for different groups of children. Next we examine intervention characteristics that relate to SEL growth and review the potential financial and societal benefit of SEL interventions. We conclude by discussing the limitations of current SEL interventions and making recommendations for research and policy. (author abstract)
