Research report on Strengthening Social and Emotional Education as a Core Curriculum Area across the EU

The Network of Experts on Social Aspects of Education and Training (NESET II) at the European Commission has just published a research report on Strengthening Social and Emotional Education as a Core Curriculum Area across the EU. The report is written by Carmel Cefai, Paul Bartolo, Valeria Cavioni and Paul Downes. It includes a meta-analysis of the most recent reviews of studies on the effectiveness of social and emotional education and proposes a multilevel framework on how it may be implemented in schools as a whole school approach. It concludes with a set of recommendations for policy makers and school leaders on how schools may strengthen the integration of social and emotional education as a core component of curricula across the EU. The report has been cited in the recent European Commission Proposal for a COUNCIL RECOMMENDATION on Key Competences for Lifelong Learning (January 2018).
