SEL.IL Promoting Social-Emotional Learning in Israel
SEL.IL Promoting Social-Emotional Learning in Israel is an applied academic center that is part of the Baruch Ivcher School of Psychology at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya. Our goal is to promote the implementation of social-emotional learning (SEL) throughout the entire Israeli educational system. We believe that education’s role today is not merely to convey knowledge, but also to equip the young generation with social-emotional skills and competencies. This will enable this generation to develop optimally and cope efficiently with complex realities and a dynamic, changing world. To advance this challenging goal, we have been cooperating closely with the Israeli Ministry of Education, local authorities, and philanthropic funds for many years.
Our Distinctive Combination of Fieldwork and Research
SEL.IL is the only academic center in Israel devoted to social-emotional learning, integrates research, development, training, implementation, and consulting for policymakers.
We believe that this distinctive combination of research and real-world activity facilitates mutual inspiration and learning, continual development, and maintaining relevance. We strictly maintain professional standards based on research.
There are many ways to promote social-emotional learning and it is important to adjust to the characteristics and needs of each educational framework in doing so. Over the years, we developed a variety of programs and training options as well as built a distinctive work model. We would be happy to cooperate with you to find the best option for you.
