"Social-Emotional Learning: A Principled Science of Human Development in Context"

Abstract: In this presentation, Dr. Jones will summarize results from randomized trials of social-emotional learning programs designed for early and middle childhood. She will highlight findings from two longitudinal, experimental evaluations to illustrate important developmental and setting-driven effects. The presentation will cover challenges and opportunities in conducting place-randomized trials of social-emotional learning programs, examining issues of definition, operationalization, and measurement in particular. Dr. Jones will finish with a discussion of the implications of this body of work for translational research, education reform, and the developmental and prevention sciences.
