Social-emotional skills

Success in school is influenced by more than merely cognitive abilities and opportunities. It is also influenced by students’ capacities to manage goal- and task-directed behaviors, maintain social relationships, and regulate emotions.These capacities are refered as social-emotional skils. I’m particularly interest in how students, parents, and teachers navigate social and emotional situations can have powerful consequences for a multitude of important life outcomes for the student, such as educational achievement and attainment, psychological and physical health, and career success.
