SEL and Conflict Resolution (No Cost for TMI PLC Members)

SEL and Conflict Resolution

An offering of the TMI/Envision Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Series

Conflict is a natural part of life.  When we learn and practice conflict resolution, we become better problem solvers, it doesn’t mean we won’t have conflicts any more. When establishing and maintaining a culture of equity and excellence, school safety teams develop and implement strategies and interventions that address student misconduct in a positive, fair and unbiased manner. Educators who value social justice establish schools that reduce exclusionary practices and foster positive social and emotional learning for students. (PSEL #3) Conflict resolution is an antidote to bullying.   Many students express that they are frustrated with the amount of attention being placed on the negative behaviors, instead of teaching students ways in which they could deal with those behaviors. And…when we listen to our students, they will tell you, “Kindness is the key for safer schools.” This session addresses NJDOE SEL sub-competencies as well as the NJ Career Ready Practices.  Attend this session to: 

  • Strategize how to tap into the “parts” of of students that are empowering to support the “parts” that aren’t. (Strength-based)
  • Establish “recovery” spaces.
  • Review the concepts of conflict resolution.
  • Practice a problem solving process.
  • Use a conflict resolution model.
  • Practice the language of respect.
