MOE Singapore:What is Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Program?
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) offers schools a unique set of skills that can be effective for teachers, administrators and students and any combination of these relationships. Whether your school would like to start a Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Program using Empowering Communication as the base, or whether you seek to augment and strengthen an existing SEL program, we are equipped to customize a program for your school.
We can help you access and evaluate the large variety of the published materials that are most effective for your school. In addition, NVC can significantly reduce violence and increase safety in schools and classrooms. By deeply understanding the unspoken needs of students who engage in violence, we are able to teach them to meet their needs in safe and effective ways. Our training can target a pilot group of teachers, students depending on school’s needs.
“The data show that Social Emotional Learning (SEL) programs yielded a strong benefit in academic accomplishment, as demonstrated in achievement test results and grade-point averages. In participating schools, up to 50% of children showed improved achievement scores and up to 38% improved their grade-point averages. SEL programs also made schools safer: incidents of misbehavior dropped by an average of 28%; suspensions by 44%; and other disciplinary actions by 27%. At the same time, attendance rates rose, while 63% of students demonstrated significantly more positive behavior. In the world of social science research, these remarkable results for any program promoting behavioral change, SEL had delivered on its promise.”
