In this talk, Dr. Ozawa-de Silva will describe advances in the field of Social and Emotional Learning that have been considered so significant that some of the founders of SEL, including Dr. Daniel Goleman, have called the result “SEL 2.0.” These advances, combined in Emory University’s Social, Emotional, and Ethical (SEE) Learning program, include teaching students about methods for cultivating compassion, ethical discernment, and a concern for equity; helping students develop a personal understanding of nervous system physiology and the effects of trauma; developing an awareness of systems and their impact on individual and social well-being; and creating a deeper approach to attention training and the navigation of emotions. The talk will describe the science and theory behind these specific developments with examples taken from the SEE Learning curriculum and from the feedback of the over 600 educators in the US, India, and Europe who were introduced to the program during its feasibility phase.
