'A scholarly and refreshing look at this rapidly growing field. Dr. Humphrey charts a clear course to improve research and increase the well-being of children throughout the world'
-Professor Mark T. Greenberg, Penn State University
'An intelligent, thoughtful and in-depth examination of the critical issues surrounding social and emotional learning from one of the leading researchers and thinkers in the field'
-Emeritus Professor Katherine Weare, University of Southampton
'Explains clearly and succinctly why SEL is important, what the research says and does not say about its impact on students, and what the implications are for the future' - Emeritus Professor Joseph A. Durlak, Loyola University of Chicago
'Given the extensive nature of SEL provision, the book is inclusive and wide ranging but also helps the reader to make important distinctions between different theoretical approaches, drivers and the plethora of different types of interventions. This book will be thought provoking for both practitioners and academics, and it provides an extremely useful text for anyone wishing to explore social and emotional learning' -- Youth In Mind * http://youthinmind.info/py/yiminfo/BookLink.py?id=2198 *
Contrasting opinions and research findings are integral to each chapter, providing a stimulating and refreshing opportunity to reflect upon and re-evaluate social and emotional teaching and learning and associated outcomes. ????? -- Sarah Mander, University of Wolverhampton
