Professional Development

Integrate SEL Programs & Practices

Frameworks’ engaging, interactive professional development workshops support schools and youth-serving organizations in integrating social and emotional learning (SEL) into their programs and practices.

Each workshop has clear objectives and offers user-friendly tips and tools so that participants leave empowered to apply SEL in their preK-12 contexts.

Workshops are tailored to meet your goals and can be held in person or virtually. Sessions can be held as one-time learning opportunities or as a series and can be used for continuing education units (CEUs) or professional development points (PDPs) with district approval.

In a 2019 teacher survey by Frameworks, the message was clear:
teachers want support on SEL.

[It helps] being able to understand that SEL is for everyone. Knowing the fact that everyone does have emotions and it can be easier than I thought. In other words, it is possible.

Teacher PD Participant

I thought this was an excellent training! Very helpful. I'm excited to start implementing new ideas to improve myself.

Teacher PD Participant

I learned that… when we have a better understanding of our students, we’re better able to meet their needs socially and emotionally, which will only aid us in helping them be a more successful individual overall.

Teacher PD Participant

Always enjoy the information Frameworks presents and the supporting role the organization plays in promoting SEL for students, teachers, and families

Guidance Counselor and PD Participant

There is never enough of CBS [Community Building Sessions™]/SEL/Frameworks. I always seem to take away something new. Thanks again!
