As part of our CASEL CARES initiative, we are offering free webinars every Friday to address how SEL can be most helpful in response to today’s circumstances. This series is made possible with support from The Allstate Foundation.


Upcoming Webinars

MAY 29: The Urgency of Educational Equity Now: A conversation with John King and Karen Pittman

We must recognize that the most vulnerable students are at particular risk during this time. The Education Trust’s John King and Forum For Youth Investment’s Karen Pittman will offer reflections on existing inequities in education that have been exposed and exacerbated by the pandemic.

JUNE 5: The Impact of Trauma on Child Development and Strategies to Support Children and Families During the Pandemic

Dr. Bruce Perry, Senior Fellow at The ChildTrauma Academy, will review clinical work and research that can help us better understand developmental trauma and the cognitive, developmental, and relational problems that can arise as a result.
