Research and Policy Briefs on Social and Emotional Development

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Award #73009
Administered in: College of Health and Human Development

Abstract:

There has been enormous growth in research and practice in the area of social and emotional learning. This project will prepare 10-12 briefs that focus on summarizing the current research and policy implications in the general area of social and emotional learning. The briefs will cover topics including early support for parent engagement and its effects on child outcomes, findings and implications of social an emotional development in infancy/toddlerhood, the preschool years, the elementary school period, and middle and high school timeframes. Other topics will include the social and emotional competence of teachers and the effects of early self-regulation on later life outcomes. Our strategy will include written briefs (web ready), video/media supplements and series of two meetings focused on these topics.
