About Center for the Promotion of Social and Emotional Learning (CPSEL) at Center for Schools and Communities is dedicated to bridging the gap between research and practice in the areas of social, emotional and character development. CPSEL provides evidence-based professional learning, consulting, coaching and resources to educators and practitioners nationally in pre-K-12 formal and informal settings. Professional learning can be customized to meet the specific needs of an organization. CPSEL also hosts a nationally recognized conference and other events and learning opportunities. Consulting and coaching involve a comprehensive process of identifying an organization’s needs and then tailoring services and interventions that bring each organization closer to realizing their SEL goals and priorities.
