Dr. Paul Vermette, from Niagara University, will give participants a better understanding of this “hot button” topic.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) can help individuals develop “soft skills” like problem-solving, critical thinking and teamwork. Many hiring managers say that these skills are as, if not more, important than technical job skills, however, more young adults are entering the workforce without this critical skillset.

Attendees will:

  • Identify SEL skills personally, and in others
  • Explore the differences in SEL skills and how best to utilize them in a diverse society
  • Examine the role these skills play in various aspects of one’s life
  • Predict the impact SEL will have on the development of a democratic nation and its institutions
