Description/Abstract

Based on a careful review of the international evidence, this book aims to provide a clear and practical overview of ways in which mainstream schools can promote the mental, emotional and social health of all those who work and learn there. It outlines the competences that constitute emotional and social health and wellbeing, and examines the evidence that social and emotional learning and academic achievement can go hand in hand, and that the same key factors underlie both emotionally healthy and effective schools. It explores the areas of school life that are key to promoting social and emotional health, including the curriculum, teaching and learning, relationships with families and the community, and school management.
