Emotional Competence

Emotional competence is another key aspect of social emotional learning that can be worked on with students using results from the CoVitality framework. CoVitality reports identify students strengths in this domain including: Empathy, or the ability to share someone else’s feelings or motivations and to understand their perspective. Behavioral Self-control, or the capability to control one’s behaviors or thoughts, and Emotional Regulation or how one manages their emotions, the efforts to control what emotions are felt, as well as how and when they are experienced and expressed.

Empathy - Here are some general resources to support fostering the development of students’ belief in self. These resources provide options to use with students CoVitality has identified could improve their strength in this area and can be implemented in schoolwide and classroom contexts, as well as by psychologists, counselors, and social workers when supporting students in an individual and group setting
