Social-emotional competences

Social-emotional competences are in a positive relation with both performance and well-being. Studies have shown that emotional intelligence is the strongest predictor of behavior problems and is strongly associated with mental health, emotion regulation and effectively dealing with changes (Davis and Humprey, 2012; Gawali, 2012)

The ability of recognizing and naming emotions, empathy, emotion regulation skills, like cognitive reframing, relaxation technics, reappraisal are some of the competences aimed to be developed by our program. Based on the worldwide known and used CASEL framework (Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning), the activities within our program contribute to the development of the five core SEL competencies in an interactive and fun way: self- management, self- awareness, social awareness, relationship management, responsible decision making.
