Charlene Voyce will discuss strategies we can use to support social and emotional learning (SEL) at home and at school.  SEL is a process for helping children, and even adults, develop the fundamental skills for life effectiveness — skills that we all need to handle ourselves, our relationships, and our work, effectively and ethically.

These skills include recognizing and managing our emotions, developing caring and concern for others, establishing positive relationships, making responsible decisions, and handling challenging situations constructively and ethically. They are the skills that allow children to calm themselves when angry, make friends, resolve conflicts respectfully, and make ethical and safe choices.

Ms. Voyce holds a Master’s in Public Health (Health Behavior and Health Education) and has been a Yale University Program Planner, Program Director, and Program Evaluator for public school programs focused on SEL.  She is also a consultant in program development, strategic planning and grant writing.
