Editorial Reviews

The School Administrator
"Offers a comprehensive overview of social-emotional learning and its impact on student achievement. Takes a more qualitative perspective, exploring the intangibles of classroom instruction with the underlying premise that students cannot learn best if social and emotional aspects of their thinking are ignored."
Beverly Eidmann
"This book is the most thorough I’ve ever read on emotional intelligence....I found it to be an extremely helpful handbook in helping me to understand the importance of SEL and in considering programs for my school...The content is relevant and meaningful for today's educators."
Steve Reifman
"Makes an important contribution to the field of social-emotional learning....I highlighted at least two dozen specific ideas that I will implement in my classroom next year....Practitioners will readily grasp the implications and applications of this material. The topic is an especially relevant one for today's educators."
David Squires
"Bringing all this information together in one spot is quite a contribution... the book is written so as to be very well understood by teachers. There isn't too much research or theory here, but lots of emphasis on 'What can I do on Monday?'"
Psyc CRITIQUES: Contemporary Psychology
"The authors present a well-articulated approach to planning and conducting evaluations. "

"This is an essential resource for all teachers, counselors, and school administrators who want their school communities to educate healthier, more resposible, and more successful students. "
Robert Di Giulio
